East of Constantinople, West of Shanghai

I have just started working on a new project, translating a book of essays and stories about witchcraft and witches. I at in the very early stages of the job – as in, copying and pasting the original text in Scrivener and breaking it up into chapters – but the book is quite good, the author is an excellent person, and we are going to have this baby ready for Halloween.

After months of gruelling work for the Client from Hell (R), this is going to be like a vacation. It’s a complicated job – lots of local terms to render in English, a few adjustments to be made after consulting the author – but at the same time it feels like taking a much deserved (and needed) vacation.
