Reworking the blog

July 28, 2009

You may have noticed I deleted all of my previous posts. A big apology to those who miss the old stories but it had to be done.

I’m a bit of a perfectionist and I want things done right and wasn’t happy with my past material. Sorry if you are disappointed, but don’t worry. New content, stories, anecdotes, etc will be coming soon and I will be revisiting old themes.

A lot of what I wrote in the past about interpreting was sophomoric and offensive and this time around my focus is going to be on entertaining and informing the public without compromising myself professionally.

Thanks for reading. I think you will enjoy the NEW Court Interpreter blog.

Back AGAIN from a LONG disappearance

July 27, 2009

So here we go, back to blogging about this profession of intelligent maniacs. I think it’s the only job where you can be certifiably insane and still be qualified and fully competent when it comes to interpreting accurately.

The work can drive you crazy. Listening to one language, speaking in another, trying to hear the original language OVER THE SOUND OF YOUR OWN VOICE …

No trials today. Yay.
