Too much smiling in the cube

I should have seen the warning signs – except there weren’t any. Just a request email on Monday night from an old client, one who pays his invoices on time, which makes him something of a star in my book. And suddenly I’m going to be translating somewhere around 25,000 words this week – means nothing to most people, but it’s a lot.

I don’t have a boss, but I’m sure Sod was out there looking after me.

This \/ is me this week.

If you’re playing TSW or GW2, I hate you.

  1. Aww, that sounds like a LOT of words

    • It actually is. Most translators average 2500 words a day. I’ll be doing ~25k in 6 days. Not to mention 5 hours of )#(*@)(*# Facebook game localization testing (testing the translation). I’m already kicking myself for having accepted, in between rubbing my eyes and wondering where sleep went.

      Bright side, it’ll be good money and that client DOES pay up… I’ll just be too tired to spend it. ;)

    I guess this isn’t a good time to tell you I chose this week to go on vacation largely so I could play some TSW.

    • Hah! I’d /nerdrage at you but I haven’t got either the time or the energy! Enjoy the game – glad you’re finally getting a chance to at any rate.
