She’s thinkin’: How did I get here?

Just a quick update to let you know I’m still alive. Next Monday I’ll have an exam and I’ll do a consecutive interpretation* in our weekly conference, so I’ll be buried under paper, glossaries, to-do-lists and more paper…

The title is brought to you by Lily Allen. Cool lyrics and a matching video.

Anyway, here’s a card I made. If you have any questions, let me know!

CIMG8856-1 Inspiration from Nina B. (Croatia)

*= Interpreting (Dolmetschen) is not to be mistaken with translating (Übersetzen), since the latter refers to a written transfer whereas interpreting is oral (consecutive = rendered after the speaker has finished, often with the help of special notation / simultaneous = rendered at the same time with the means of a sound-proof booth and headsets). [by no means is this a complete description]

  4. Oh, Du Arme, das hört sich tough an… Hoffe, Du kommst mit dem Lernen voran! Schickes Kärtchen 🙂 Erinnernt mich daran, auch mal wieder auf den Ribbons zu stempeln. Wg. dem Zwirn: Wollte erst den bei D. Peuss bestellen, weil’s mich so an diesen Button Twine von PTI erinnert, aber meine Mum hatte coolerweise noch eine angebrochene Sisalgarnrolle auf dem Dachboden gefunden, die fast so aussieht (finde ich). Allerdings ist das Zeug ganz schön “fusselig” und löst sich beim Knoten fast in alle Bestandteile auf…
