flexible deadlines for translators

Watch out, translator! If you see a potential job posting using the words “flexible deadline” in the description, stay away from it. It is most probably a lie. In the life of a freelance translator deadlines are never flexible.

International Translation Day

Translator's Day

International Translation Day is observed on September 30th

Buy Now Button Purchase code TD1

Let me describe what happens in the life of translators every September 30th. They would wake up excited and hopeful expecting that this time their family and friends will remember it is the date to celebrate translation as a profession. They have already explained this numerous times in the past around this date making sure the people surrounding them know that soon it would be their date. Translators even fantasize about the idea of receiving presents or gifts on this day. After all, what they do is only comparable to what superheroes do! However, no matter the efforts made over the years to remind everyone September 30th is the right time to acknowledge the amazing and incredibly difficult job that translators do every day — the long hours spent in front of the computer, the sleepless nights, the research carried out, the passion invested in each word written, in each meaning conveyed, the battles with low rates, failing technology or intermittent Internet signal — almost everyone will forget…

Cheer up, translator, you are not alone! Your fellow translators WILL remember and greetings are surely on their way. Here’s mine.

HAPPY INTERNATIONAL TRANSLATION DAY!

Keep the good work for you are amazing. Honor this day and remember to greet your colleagues, too.

We rock! Have a good one.

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.

“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.
