Translation World Cup: promise fulfilled
Last month I invited you to vote for me in the Translation World Cup, hosted by Proz.com and Matecat.
I then promised to donate a certain amount when I should win the World Cup. I didn’t win, but I became the first from all participating English to Dutch translators. That was nice.
However there are so many people who do not even get the change to show their skills simply because they’re born in a poor country, because they’re ill or because they do not have access to resources they need.
