From today there is a new link on this website. It's to the bookmarking website Delicious and my collection of useful or interesting language-related websites. Not much there yet, I'm afraid, but as we say in Austrian German: "Gut Ding braucht Weile." (~"No haste, no waste" or rather: "Help! I need more time!") I hope to be able to fill the list with lots of interesting language/linguistics or translation websites worth looking at, for you to peruse and for me to keep track of. Ideas and suggestions also welcome.
Dear valued visitor, dear cherished customer!
It's been six months since I started this website (with the help of wonderful Weebly - thanks again, you guys and gals!) and it's high time I started posting something. First of all, I would like to wish you all a prosperous 2014 and many interesting discoveries on the web (such as this page). I would love to thrill you all with witty comments and wonderful news from the world of language studies, but I'm afraid that will have to wait until I find the TIME! I've been very busy lately working for some truly wonderful people, who made me feel that starting my own business was the right step to take at this time in my working career. Of course, I'd also be happy for you to post your observations, comments or queries here on this site if you like -- I promise to reply in a timely manner. Which brings me back to the question of 'time' and another reason for why I seem to be having so little of it to spare lately: I'm trying to keep up with the news and developments in the world outside my window. Not an easy task but absolutely crucial in my line of work. There is nothing worse (or more embarrassing) than not knowing how to spell a person's name or what that new hype or latest fad is all about -- especially if everybody has been talking about it! It's check, check and check again in my line of work. It's time-consuming, but so much better than letting machines do it, don't you think?
