“Thank you for the very useful course last night. It was really great to understand many of the issues in the exam and what to think about. Very good food for thought and I hope there are more courses like this one.” - Kate Pattison, Vancouver. This remark was in reference to a workshop I presented on May 9, 2019 for the STIBC called Language Specific Translation Workshop Series: Spanish to English. Its blurb went as follows: STIBC-certification is what all serious B.C.-based translators should strive for in order to gain recognition, access government-related jobs, and stand out in their profession. With a 20% pass rate on average, the STIBC Certification Exam can be challenging even for those of us who have years of experience. This workshop will ideally strive to prepare working Spanish to English translators for that challenge!
“On the whole, the translation was very competent indeed.” - Chris Hall, Leeds, UK, who made these remarks after proofreading a translation I completed for Translators Without Borders (TWB). Chris is one of TWB's 'super' volunteers, having donated more than 420 thousand words as of April 2018!
