Happy Translators Day!

“Found in Translation”People often ask me about my job working with languages.  Now, there is a new book out that explains what I do, but in a really fun and entertaining way.  It’s a collection of stories, and takes people behind the scenes at places like Nestlé, Google, Hallmark, the United Nations… even NASA and the US State Department. The book is entertaining and thought-provoking, revealing translation as one of the essential threads that holds together the fabric of our society. It is published by a major publisher, Penguin, but was written by two colleagues of mine. It has been endorsed by Academy Award-winning actress Marlee Matlin and leaders from Microsoft, Twitter, Facebook, National Geographic, and even the European Parliament.  They all say they enjoyed it, and I think you will too.

The book is called Found in Translation: How Language Shapes Our Lives and Transforms the World. You can find more information about it at this link (http://www.xl8book.com). You can find it at bookstores throughout the United States or at this link (http://www.amazon.com/Found-Translation-Language-Shapes-Transforms/dp/039953797X).

Feel free to forward this to anyone else you think might like to know about it.  I’m so excited for more people to see how fun and meaningful translation really is!
