Happy New Year, my dear readers! If I say that 2020 was a rollercoaster, it won't be a surprise. But there were quite a few good things that I am grateful for. 1. In February, my daughter went on a school trip to Germany. The journey went very well, the kids saw Berlin and Dresden and visited a national park near Dresden. They loved it. 2. We started renovating our apartment — that's a big job that will continue in 2021. So far everything is going well. 3. I had enough translation and editing work all throughout the year.

How are you, my dear readers? Hope you are doing well. I haven't been posting anything here for quite some time, but I've been thinking about reviving this blog. And today it occurred to me that I can write here about any important work related events. I do a lot of things online, so it's time to actually speak about them :-) I have recently recorded my first marketing translation analysis (as part of my ongoing efforts to make a full-scale online course on marketing translation). Here it is. Hope you'll find it interesting (note: it is in Russian): Since last year, I have also been a member of the Translation Teachers Association. A couple weeks ago I was invited to speak about methods of effective online teaching. The webinar was also in Russian. Hope it will be interesting for those of you who speak Russian and teach online. Wishing you all the very best! Talk soon.
