Just finished week eight of my course, The Age of Sustainable Development. It's been a fascinating journey so far and here's a quick look at the first eight weeks. Caution, emotional translator alert!

BOND Conference 2016: a translator's view -

I recently attended the UK's largest NGO conference, the BOND Conference 2016. Here's my view of the event and learning points for translators working in this sector.

"Old people like progress but not change"


Looking forward to attending my first Bond conference tomorrow. Venue, speaker list and workshops look great!


I'm on week four of a 14-week online course called The Age of Sustainable Development. This is being provided by Columbia University and is taught by Jeffrey Sachs, a senior UN advisor and Director of the Earth Institute. Here's a brief overview of my progress so far.


Just took part in a remarkably interesting webinar on International Development translation by the brilliant Corinne McKay. I included this webinar in my business plan because I've translated for this sector in the past and wondered if it could be a reliable and profitable source of income. And perhaps equally important: I loved working on these texts! I felt good using my skills to help others. And the topics involved were varied and interesting. After watching the webinar, I've decided to definitely seek more work in this area. I'm looking into extra CPD to gain greater knowledge of the international development world. And I'm searching for events where I can meet potential clients. An exciting and positive start to 2016!


For reasons completely within my control I've been without internet at home for the past week. I blame my IT manager. In theory that's me, as I'm freelance, but it's more fun to create and then blame a fictional person. And not at all worrying. Anyway, he/I forgot to renew the internet service that had been cancelled a year before by the previous tenant. Yes, the provider called me up to suggest I renew. Yes, I tried to get them to offer a free router as an incentive to stay with them. And yes, they told me that wasn't going to happen. So they stopped ringing me, my contract ran out and I'll be back online in two weeks. Which brings me to the point of this post. I've been forced into what would once have been called an 'internet cafe'. Except one lick of black paint, some factory lighting and a dusting of beards later we now know as a 'co-working cafe'. Over the next couple of weeks I'll be cycling myself and my laptop to a variety of these 'spaces'. On the plus side this will help keep me fit. And I'll get to eat more cake. So not all bad then.

Shop: Peak Performance for Interpreters: Practice right

Just watched an excellent webinar on practice for interpreters from eCPD webinars. Lots of great ideas!

Shop: Peak Performance for Interpreters: Practice right As interpreting students and new interpreters we spend much time practising, but have we been taught to practise effectively? And what is effective practice? As seasoned interpreters we may slowly drift away from recording and monitoring ourselves. Does that mean we do not practise any more? Should…
