This is me doing my latest hobby (these are two very enjoyable grade #15 climbs near Montague in South Africa -- the first pair in Bad Kloof and the second pair in Lego Land):
Stuff I've written
- About Translation: written in English for St Jerome's day 2001, for publication in a local newspaper.
- Introduction to Wordfast (Afrikaans only): published in the same issue of the Muratho as the previous article. There used to be an English translation but I appear to have lost my copy of it. Very outdated.
- OmegaT: Introduction and tutorial: OmegaT is a compter assisted translation tool. Here's my introduction and tutorial for version 1.3.5. Very outdated.
- Tips for amateur terminologists (Afrikaans only): This is an article seeking to address the types of errors often made by budding terminologists, specifically aimed at computer terms but also applicable to general termwriting.
- What is a fair rate? At the prompting of the Fair Trade Net group I wrote a pilot document for scientifically determining a fair rate for translators. The results are shocking (or incorrect -- you decide which).
