These are pictures of my backyard, the top one after a hurricane, the middle one after a long rain and the lower one on a sunny day.
I am a freelance technical translator who specializes mostly in patents and articles from technical and medical journals. I have translated thousands of patents, mostly from Japanese and German, but also from French, Russian, Czech and Slovak, and a few from Polish to English. I am based in Virginia, near the the Atlantic Ocean and the North Carolina border.
I have been writing articles about translation for various publications in US for translators such as the Translorial (Northern California Translators Association), and The Gotham Translator (New York City Translators) in the nineties, as well as for the ATA Chronicle (American Translators Association) more recently. I also wrote a number of articles for Gabe Bokor’s Translation Journal.
I started writing this blog in February of 2010. The purpose of this blog is to keep people who are interested in translation and related topics entertained by my posts and hopefully have some fun while doing that.
