Well, one of the things about being a translator, is that you have to be good at foreign languages, which normally means living abroad.
By now, I'm already used to having no kind of christmas holiday, today I'm trying to tidy up my accounts, and I still had to go to work.
Luckily I guess I'll get most of Chinese New Year off though.
I've actually found there seems to be slightly more work around than usual at the moment, I guess because no one else wants to do it. It would be interesting to see how a years work works out per month, I think I'm pretty evenly distributed throughout the year.
