Sorry for the long absence: It's been a hectic period. A long on-site QA project (in Palo Alto); developing, teaching and grading the last few classes of the localization course at Denver University's University College, and, above all, the last-minute work for the Art Students League of Denver's Summer Art Market.
The Summer Art Market went well, considering the economic downturn: I sold several pieces, met other artists and old friends, and felt re energized and encouraged to devote more time to painting.
I also have plans for more writing: at least a few long articles, both for About Translation and possibly for some print media.
Speaking of which: the next ATA Chronicle contains a piece chosen from this blog (Translation tests v. translation samples).
