kawehilani: (Work)
There is a translation agency I've been working for since October (let's call it M for future reference).

For the first three months, they only sent me translations once in a while. Since the beginning of January, they adopted a new habit: now they normally send me translations on Friday evening and ask me to do them by Monday.

This week, they sent me a 5-page translation (the one I mentioned in my previous post, actually) on Thursday, and I thought, Oh, maybe this week my Friday evening will be mail-free!

And guess what? They've just sent me two new translations to do by Monday!

Argh.

But then, I really, really need a new wardrobe for my historical dresses :)

Since I work as a freelance translator, I occasionally send my CV to various translation agencies. A little more than a month ago I sent my CV with a cover letter to a translation agency which was looking for more translators of personal documents. I used to work on a similar position for nearly two years, so I applied. They responded with a letter containing their working conditions and a form for me to fill out, which I did. It was on December 19, and they just informed me that they are actually hiring me.

I'm a bit surprised, frankly - agencies usually ask translators to do a sample translation or two. Of course, they might have contacted the agency I worked for (I mentioned it both in my CV and the cover letter) and get all the information about my translation abilities they needed from them, but still.

Not that I mind, of course - more work, more money. I'm just a bit surprised :)

Athena
Take my love, take my land
Take me where I cannot stand
I don't care, I'm still free
You can't take the sky from me
Take me out to the black
Tell them I ain't comin' back
Burn the land and boil the sea
You can't take the sky from me
There's no place I can be
Since I found Serenity
But you can't take the sky from me...
