Here’s my first poem inspired by our lovely profession. I’ve been trying to find a nice one, but since I couldn’t, I wrote one myself.

I hope you like it and find it amusing.

“Glossary” meaning – UGFTI

Glossary definition

Project glossary defined for translators and interpreters

 

Buy Now Button Purchase code G1

Let me guess… You have landed a translation project. Everything runs smoothly. You receive the files and even a glossary to complete the task! You start your translation and you are doing great! You are fine except for a few key terms that are crucial for the meaning of the text. You don’t panic because you know you have the wide and robust glossary specifically sent for this project, right? Well… guess what as a rule of thumb the glossary will never contain “the terms” YOU need so urgently. Translators’ luck.

Keep the smile all the same! Being a freelance translator is a fun adventure, isn’t it?

“Update installation” meaning – UGFTI

Update installation defined for translators and interpreters

Buy Now Button Purchase code UI1

Isn’t it just our luck, translators? We land a fairly large project and just before the deadline our computer will need an update installation to keep running smoothly. And guess what… the updates will keep being installed for ages, but don’t you dare to turn your computer off or you will have to start the process all again. So, yes, it is a dead end.

Keep the smile all the same! Being a freelance translator is a fun adventure.
