It’s hard to believe we’re halfway through the year already, but seeing as how we’re already approaching the midway point, it seems like a great time to catch up as a community and discover what kind of projects 2021 has brought for all of you. This time, we’d like to hear about any interesting sidelines that you’ve been working on, and particularly any unusual projects that you’ve been involved with this year, both within and outside of translation.
Translators are, by definition, natural writers, so we’d love to hear about any writing projects that you’ve been involved with in any language, and we’d also like to know whether you pursue any other activities that could broadly be described as ‘creative’, such as music, dance, or photography. Or perhaps you’re a secret designer, you teach languages, or you have another skill that not everybody knows about? Even if it’s something that you think is silly, it will surely be interesting to an audience that’s not familiar with it, so please don’t be shy about sharing!
We’ve always been struck by how many talents our translator community has, and by how easily you can all turn yourselves to an incredibly eclectic set of activities. Whatever you’ve been working on this year, please do feel free to discuss it! We’d love to hear which creative projects 2021 has brought for you!
