Good news for those planning to attend our next virtual conference next Tuesday and Wednesday!

Hi everybody! As you know, I am speaking at the Sharp End Training virtual worker conference this Tuesday. If you haven't heard about it yet, you can check the info here.

We already held a similar conference for freelance translators and it was a great success! But there were also quite a few people who couldn't come, so this is your chance!

The online conference features a panel of speakers all experts in aspects of virtual working, blogging, client relations, networking, presentations and more.
The format is quite simple; each session is a separate event in itself - to make sure that you don't spend time on anything you don't need. There is a season ticket option - access to all sessions.

All attendees get to meet up for a virtual speed networking session - ideal to build valuable connections and alliances.

The good news is that I am offering 3 free season tickets to the conference! I already posted the info about it on Twitter and going to post it also on Facebook, so if you want to grab your place you need to contact me ASAP.

To be in with a chance of winning a season ticket - access to all areas - including the session recordings - just contact me. The three first people will get the tickets.

Alternatively, if you want to be sure of your seat at the event - write a blog post about it - details here and be sure to tell Jonathan Senior about it to be SURE of a 50% discount voucher for a season ticket.
More info about the last proposal is here: http://sharp-end-training.co.uk/tell-us-about-your-blog-post

Both proposals last ONLY through Friday, Saturday and Sunday. So hurry up and grab your place! I can assure you, it will be a great experience :)

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. I was lucky enough when I started my translation career back in 2004 to read about the “ A Complaint Is a Gift ” business book and receive my training by a true professional Arabic translator. My colleague taught me the tactics of a professional’s reply to a negative feedback and the book mentions the bright side of receiving a complaint about your work. If the client does not like your work, he can just m

15 interesting facts about the English language

I prepared this list for one of my English classes. And then it dawned on me that I can share it with you, too! So here are 15 facts about the English language that I find very interesting. Hope you do, too ;) Rudyard Kipling was fired as a reporter for the San Francisco Examiner. His dismissal letter said, "I'm sorry, Mr. Kipling, but you just don't know how to use the English language. This isn't a kindergarten for amateur writers." No language has more synonyms than English.

Translation Forum Russia 2017: my report

A few days ago I came back from Translation Forum Russia which took place in Ufa, Bashkortostan . My daughter Delia went with me because she never visited Ufa before (neither have I) and because of the trip to the Southern Ural mountains we planned to take after the conference with a small group of colleagues. Ufa is not considered one of the primary tourist attractions of Russia, though I am convinced now that it definitely should be. Some pictures of the city (not all of the pictures are mine, some were made by the official photographer of the conference Elena Ekaterininskaya, our company CEO Fedor Kondratovich and some other colleagues): The bee is a symbol of the region as Bashkortostan produces the best honey in Russia. We saw installations shown below in different parts of the city. There were still covered because of the cold weather, but they will be full of blooming flowers as soon as the warm weather comes. The bee as we saw it That's what it
