In this issue, Ruth A. Gentes Krawczyk offers her final “Word from” after four faithful years as the GLD Administrator. Don’t miss the important information she has about the GLD’s distinguished speakers, the upcoming divisional elections and the much-anticipated GLD networking event in San Diego.
After you’ve absorbed all the official stuff, translator and career coach Jeannette Bauroth will get you excited for San Diego by taking a look back at last year’s conference in Boston in “Speed-Dating für Übersetzer.” ATA newcomer Nicole Y. Adams, based in Australia, shares her insights in “Networking to Boost Your Business” – a great read with some good advice for all of us freelancers. And San Francisco based translator and writer Heidi Holzer is our Translator in Profile, telling her story in “One Translator’s Journey.”
GLD-list master Gerhard Preisser has again prepared two recent threads from one of our greatest perks as GLD members – access to the GLD Yahoo Group and with it boundless knowledge, insights and support from our fellow members. This issue’s dictionary review features the 6th edition of Zahn, Wörterbuch für das Bank- und Börsenwesen, Teil 1 by none other than the GLD’s Ted Wozniak, a man who has been “bridging the language GAAP” for years. Rounding off this issue is a calendar of events for the remainder of 2012.
