Rejections and other progress

Update on the work-in-progress, I got turned down by two university presses, and finished translating chapter 17 last Sunday. Five more chapters to go!

Useful and fun things for any Chinese/English translator or translator-wannabe:

  • The Center for the Art of Translation’s Lit&Lunch podcasts, the one I heard recently, featuring Allison Anderson, was very inspiring.
  • A huge Chinese audiobooks site, YouSheng8.com. It has more books read aloud than you can possibly make time for. Now I can practice consecutive translation all the time!
