Hi Bethany, this is Heather from the Nook, finally dropping by your blog again. I was wondering if you are currently translating anything and if you translate Spanish to English only, or both directions? Just curious, since I've done some literary translation and am currently working on a long (but interesting) project.

Oh, and I would have to put "Word World" on the very short list of shows we watch via our bunny ears. ;)

trish- YAY~!!! Great job...love your answers!

heather- I looked for a blog to be able to comment on for you...do you have one??? let me know if I am missing it!!!

Anyway, welcome by again...I love it when you visit. I am not currently translating much. Mostly little official documents here and there. I WISH I had something literary to translate!!! I am so happy that you are working on something fun. That is what I would really like to do, but the opportunity has not been there yet.May I ask where you obtained the connections to get into literary translations??? I would love to do it, translating is intense, but so rewarding and yes, my dream would be to translate a novel.....someday!
