Are Flemish and Dutch One and the Same?
When I decided to study Dutch, I did not imagine there would be so many different variations of this language. In fact, I thought that it was only spoken in Holland, but later I discovered that I could not be more wrong. I got in touch with a private Dutch teacher through a friend. When […]

Embracing MT: Haters gonna Hate
I apologize if my title sounds a bit informal, but if we pick up where we left off last time, we may delve further, deeper, into the abyss of resistance and even hatred that MT has awoken in both users and consumers. First, we should let you know a basic truth. Resistance is futile. You […]
Who Let The Dogs Out?
If you are like me, you?ve probably found yourself watching news and videos online featuring man?s fluffy-best friends. There?s no better way to lift your spirit than watching puppy videos online.

A great deal of the value that a translation agency provides has nothing to do with the translation of words, but rather with the way that words are presented on a page or on a screen. A written document can be created in a wide variety of formats, each with its own particular complications. When […]
The Electric-Kool Aid Language Test
Is Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds? Or is Luke in the ground covered in dirt? You?re probably saying to yourself, ?that got pretty #dark pretty fast, is this about a bad acid trip??
