Rather excitingly in the space of the first day of TransTeach’s relaunch, we’ve been:
1) approached to give Swift (subtitling) software training by the mother of a recent graduate who’s just starting out in the industry and, like us, has a passion for subtitling.
2) carry out a Welsh translation (a task which we will of course pass on to a competent collaborator!)
3) asked to participate in a questionnaire by a former client who is now throwing their all in to creating a tool to make translators’ everyday lives much easier (from quote right through to invoice).
So, it would seem that the future is indeed positive…and purple! And that social media really is the way forward for business these days.
Now that the working day is over, it’s back to the creative writing we so love to undertake in our spare time (spare time, we hear you shout, what’s that??!), inspired, oh so inspired, by the beautiful Yorkshire countryside (and people!) where we’re based. It’s all great fodder for honing the language skills but lovely to be able to write exactly what we want instead of creating something for someone else’s purposes, for once. So, watch this space. News of our next writing projects will be winging their way to you soon!
