The perfect present for a freelance translator has arrived! Mox: Illustrated Guide to Freelance Translation by Alejandro Moreno-Ramos is a must-have for all the translators out there with a sense of humor who are also willing to take some time to reflect on the actors in the translation industry and the role each of them plays. It is very likely that you will also pick your favorite and least favorite characters in Mox’s book (chances are you will find some similarities between yourself and at least one of them).

Apart from numerous hilarious first-ever-published cartoons the book features thirteen articles by the following renowned freelance translators:

  1. Alex Eames
  2. Benny Lewis
  3. Céline Graciet
  4. Corinne McKay
  5. Jill Sommer
  6. Judy Jenner
  7. Kevin Lossner
  8. Laurent Laget
  9. Pablo Muñoz
  10. Ramón Somoza
  11. Rose Newell
  12. Sarah M. Dillon
  13. Steve Vitek

So if you are a translator and you have not written your letter yet, make sure you add this item to your list.

You’ll have a fun holiday season!
