  • Thu, 17:11: Work has been so busy lately, I can't get in the mood to do major cooking. :P
  • Thu, 17:12: But I think it'd be nice to just spend the day relaxing and snacking on things now and then.
  • Thu, 17:15: I think what I've been trying to focus on lately when it comes to translation is readability.
  • Thu, 17:17: If you're too literal, and it comes out barely comprehensible or doesn't flow well, then that's not really an accurate translation.
  • Thu, 17:18: To carry across the true intent of the writing, you have to make sure it sounds natural too.
  • Thu, 17:20: Ideally you can translate the literal wording & make it flow well too. But sometimes you need to reword things or it won't make sense.
  • Thu, 17:21: This all sounds pretty obvious but it's something I've been working on. :P
  • Thu, 17:25: My worry is that I might take too many liberties, and it'll end up sounding like something I wrote, instead of the original author's voice.
  • Thu, 17:26: So yeah, it's all about balance. I think I'm getting better, but there's always room to improve.
  • Thu, 21:06: Wow, the weather is PERFECT today. O_O I can't believe I can still take my dog out to play fetch at this time of year...
  • Thu, 21:07: Though I do hope we get some snow days sometime this season...
  • Fri, 03:19: Didn't make or eat a typical Thanksgiving meal, but I still ate too much today. XD
