Would you like to witness Guinness world record being broken and learn something useful in the process?



If yes, we are inviting you to take part in the longest webinar of your life! It’s going to take place on the 25th and 26th of June. Yes, it’s this coming Tuesday and Wednesday! It may sound like an absolutely crazy initiative of Sharp End Training, but we really want to break the previous Guinness record, and in order to do that we need to make it last for 36 hours and 1 minute!

So, since we got this chance to hold this important and FREE training session we thought the best thing would be to divide the 36 hours into 1 hour sections. And can you imagine the number of people who became as passionate as we are? Fabulous speakers signed up in an extremely short time to fill those 36 hours. And look what people have signed up! They are kings and queens of virtual work, marketing and freelance business. And of course translators are on board! You have a chance to learn from Konstantina Drakou, Sarah Colombo, Marta Chereshnovska, Lucy Brooks, Joy Mo, and yours truly. :) Each speaker has his or her own topic so that none of them repeat one another! So click here and see which sessions you are most interested in!

All you need to do is register once and you will get an email with the information necessary to log in and watch any training sessions you wish.

We are looking forward to seeing you there!

10 interesting facts about the Russian language

In my previous post I promised to follow with the  interesting info about some other languages.

1. Russian has about 500,000 words, but only 2,000-2,500 of them are used frequently. 100 most frequently used words make 20% of all written and oral speech. A high school graduate's vocabulary usually has 1,500 to 4,000 words. Those who have graduated from a higher educational institution normally have a richer vocabulary consisting of approximately 8,000 words.
2. It's compulsory for all astronauts in the international space station to learn Russian, so we can call it an international language of space :)

How to Reply To a Negative Feedback About Your Translation

We are humans and we screw up many times!

And receiving a negative feedback about your translation work if one of them.

As translation professionals, we work daily with people from different cultures and backgrounds. So, it is quite important to keep a level of etiquette while we do our business communication.

Whatever your years of experience or your educational background, there are times when daily life affects our business badly. It is how we react to these situations what makes a big difference between professional translation service providers and those who are not.
