Is anybody out there?
Not only is this my first blog entry ever but what I’m about to ask is also a bit nerve-racking in terms of my professional life. I’m the English translator for digitec and Galaxus and have just been given the rare chance to drop my readers a line. Hadn’t realised you were reading translated texts*? Well in that case I would like to thank you very much for the huge compliment! A good translation should sound natural and therefore be invisible to readers. The downside of that is that it makes translators invisible, too. So dare I ask the question: Is anybody out there? Make yourself known and make my day by clicking on the heart or adding a comment! Thank you.★Since starting in winter 2014, I’ve roughly translated 6 million characters
