Translation Feast or Famine

Translation Feast or Famine

I’ve always enjoyed the cartoons and books by Alejandro Moreno-Ramos, known to translators all over the world as the creator of Mox, the grumbly but hard-working and lovable translator who expresses his daily observations, frustrations, and celebrations of life in the world of translation.

Starting this week, we’re kicking off an exclusive series of Mox cartoons that are being made available online for the very first time for readers of the Smartling blog.  We’re excited to share them, to highlight some of the experiences and realities of life as a freelance translator. Enjoy!
