In this episode, Speaking of Translation co-hosts Eve Bodeux and Corinne McKay discuss their newly-released books.
Eve’s book Maintaining Your Second Language: practical and productive strategies for translators, teachers, interpreters and other language lovers is available in print and electronic versions. It’s a handbook of fun and useful strategies for keeping up a language that you speak at a high level but don’t use all the time (which could even be your native language, or your fourth language!). Eve presented on this topic at a past ATA conference (and for the French translators’ association–SFT), and many attendees commented that she offered all-new tips that they had never considered.
Corinne’s book is the third edition of her popular business book How to Succeed as a Freelance Translator. It’s available in print and electronic versions, or as a direct-download PDF on Corinne’s website. With over 10,000 copies sold, this book has become a go-to handbook for beginning and experienced translators alike, and the new edition features an all-new technology chapter by Jost Zetzsche, translation technology guru and author of the popular Took Kit translation technology newsletter.
We discuss what’s inside these books, who can benefit from them and how we went about creating them!
