Last weekend, I went to a writer's conference.  It was a lot of fun, but while I was there, I discovered something very useful for my translation work.

As a native speaker, I have often felt instinctively that there was an "order" that adjectives should go, but no one has ever explained this to me explicitly.  Well, it turns out there's actually a rule for it!  (Or at the very least, a rule of thumb.)  

Since I know I'm not the only beginning-level translator working for Gengo, I thought I'd share a link to the article, for anyone who might find it useful.

    Ha! I used to use that site as a resource when I was teaching English. Brings back memories!
