Firstly, I would like to thank all those linguists and perhaps non-linguists who have either read, liked or followed my posts, either here or on The Magic Pen Edits Facebook page. Thank you for following me and/or sharing my posts with fellow colleagues and friends! I hope you've found them both interesting and useful for your translation/editing/proofing business!
Secondly, while I take my time to keep writing articles that I struggle to render as relevant as possible in between translation and editing projects, I just want to wish all editors, translators, proofers, interpreters and copy writers worldwide a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
In a few weeks, I'll be posting some thoughts on working "as a favour" for your "friends" and other acquaintances—who may be as barefaced as your friends to ask the same thing—, and maybe an article connected with learning new languages other than the ones you translate and/or edit for a living.
Until then, HAPPPY HOLIDAYS AND MERRY GOAL-SETTING everyone, and as my new magnetic bookmark tells me whenever I glance at it:
OF WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY
