Happy International Translation Day! For all those translators out there, keep up the hard work.

For those of you without work or without as much work as you’d like, keep on trucking. You can do it, you’ll get there. I’m almost *there* myself, and since it’s my passion, I continue to push myself to reach my goal.

It’s a hard job. It’s challenging to be able to find the words and phrases that convey the meanings of the original work. But this is something that we need in our ever-changing, ever-smaller, global world.

We need to be able to communicate with each other, and we need to have access to ways to see things from other points of views- ex. literary translation.

I love getting to work with French and English,  to read and write, and to create things on a daily basis.
