Eve Bodeux and I just released a new episode of Speaking of Translation (our occasional podcast on the language industry), focusing on our newly-published books. The photo is from a book signing we did this weekend with our good friend Tess Whitty, which our other good friend Riccardo Schiaffino wrote up for his blog, About Translation, including this great photo!
Eve’s book Maintaining Your Second Language: practical and productive strategies for translators, teachers, interpreters and other language lovers is available in print and electronic versions. It’s a handbook of fun and useful strategies for keeping up a language that you speak at a high level but don’t use all the time (which could even be your native language, or your fourth language!). Eve presented on this topic at a past ATA conference (and for the French translators’ association–SFT), and many attendees commented that she offered all-new tips that they had never considered.
My book is the third edition of How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator. It’s available in print and electronic versions, or as a direct-download PDF on my website. With over 10,000 copies sold, this book has become a go-to handbook for beginning and experienced translators alike, and the new edition features an all-new technology chapter by Jost Zetzsche, translation technology guru and author of the popular Took Kit translation technology newsletter.
And don’t forget that the next session of my online course Getting Started as a Freelance Translator starts May 16. Just a few spots left!
