There is no fun side to war

Showing your disapproval of war
Stop the war

Feeling absolutely impotent and incredulous about what is happening around the world, I felt the need to post something showing my disapproval of the war and of any actions that are not in line with healing the world and taking steps to recover from the pandemic, and fighting climate change. The world is ailing as it is. A war today seems incomprehensible. I thought humanity had learned from history and yet here we are…

Top scariest horror movies

scariest horror movies for translators
A translator talks about the scariest horror movie in their life.

Continuing with the humourous cartoons about translators I felt the inspiration to create this cartoon playing a little with the most dreaded word a translator can hear —”deadline”.

Translators are an odd type that is most exposed when mingled with other “normal” people. No matter how hard they try to go with the flow, there is always a detail that will give them away. Do you agree?

Cards for English lovers – received pronunciation RP

Received pronunciation - RP - British accent
English lovers simply adore a posh accent

RP is probably the most widely studied and most frequently described variety of spoken English in the world, yet recent estimates suggest only 3% of the UK population speak it. (…) As well as being a living accent, RP is also a theoretical linguistic concept. It is the accent on which phonemic transcriptions in dictionaries are based, and it is widely used (in competition with General American) for teaching English as a foreign language. RP is included here as a useful reference, not to imply it has greater merit than any other English accent, but because it provides us with an extremely familiar model against which comparisons with other accents may be made.

Happy translator’s day.

Have a good one!

Tools for interpreters: Numerizer

tools for interpreters
Get your numbers right with numerizer

When searching for material to practice big numbers for my interpreting training, I came across a fairly useful site called numerizer created by Anton Klevansky, who is a professional Russian conference interpreter member of AIIC. According to the the tool’s creator:

“Numerizer was designed for (future) interpreters and language learners by a professional interpreter with the aim of providing an unlimited source of challenging exercises, such as: jotting down every number in a sequence; shadowing (repeating after the speaker, first being just one number behind the original, then progressively trying to lag further behind); simultaneous or consecutive interpreting.”

Numerizer 1.0.2 beta has features that enable you to choose from several languages and accents, select the pace at which you would like to hear the rendering and set the amount of numbers to generate as well as the minimum and the maximum values.

The languages included are English US, English UK, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese (Mandarin), and Chinese (Cantonese).

Note: there seems to be a glitch that does not allow you to set a minimum to a number smaller than 10 000 or a maximum over 999 999 999.

I hope you find this tool useful and have fun with your practice.

Happy interpreting!
