  3. Romina what wonderful observations! Nadie cree lo que hacemos los traductores ni las exigencias de tener siempre trabajos urgentes.

But we’re free to work in our slippers and eat yesterday’s leftovers if we want to, and that’s one of the very cool things about freelancing 🙂 (Just make sure you don’t have a skype video call before you combed your hair and had a shave and a shower though :))
