I am leaving today for a short holiday in the Czech Republic to visit a friend who is willing to start up as a freelance interpreter and translator there. Aside from visiting some of the country’s landmarks, I will try to see if I can grasp something translation-related and worth a blog post.
Is anyone off for a break in these days? I’d love to know where you’re going!
Second highlight… I have added the badge of Translators without Borders to my sidebar. I’ve been a volunteer since the beginning of 2012 and, although EN>IT assignments are rare, I hope to give my contribution.
(Let’s skip how long it took me to resize the logo properly… 😉 )
Update on 4th October 2012: please read the comments below for Veronica Lupascu’s advice on how to obtain your badge!
Fabrice Foucaud has set up a website about learning French. He contacted me a while ago because he was trying to compile an e-book collecting advice on how to learn French or another language by language lovers. I was delighted to be able to participate! I’ve already had the pleasure to see a draft of the (free!) book, which has just been made available today, and I found some suggestions very helpful.
My contribution should be at page 26 and 27, please let me know what you think!
And finally, get ready for International Translation Day on 30th September! You can read a short press release from the Translation centre of the Bodies of the EU. Will you do anything special?
* Goodbye in Czech
