When help arrives

Today, we wel­come a new per­son to our team. Wel­come, Abbie! Abbie is a trans­la­tor I found through a plat­form cal­led Upwork. Do you remem­ber I was tel­ling you about divi­ding your acti­vi­ties into tasks and iden­ti­fying pat­terns? Well, that’s what I did, and my first action was iden­ti­fying, as many have done before me, the content from the contai­ner. Trans­la­tion just about fits into these two areas. Abbie must take my text in French and trans­late it into English. This work requires a subt­le­ty of lan­guage that goes beyond sim­ply mana­ging the raw text.

When it comes to divi­ding tasks, we first­ly aim to balance spe­cia­li­sa­tion and gene­ral know­ledge of the pro­cess itself. For me, out­sour­cing must yield a pro­fit. We can unders­tand value in dif­ferent ways. What I chose is the fol­lo­wing; in the same amount of time, increa­sing the ove­rall qua­li­ty of the pro­duct, or at least main­tai­ning the qua­li­ty, whil­st redu­cing the pro­duc­tion time. In Abbie’s case, it is the for­mer that applies.

So, wel­come, Abbie. I’ll leave you with the final word.

Hey eve­ryone! So, as you know, my name is Abbie. I am from Ire­land, but I cur­rent­ly live in Scot­land, wor­king as a trans­la­tor and a sub­tit­ler. As Dan­ny said, we came across each other on Upwork, and I’m so exci­ted to become a part of this fami­ly and to pro­vide (hope­ful­ly) some good English ver­sions of Danny’s work! Lan­guages, for me at least, are the most fas­ci­na­ting thing in the world. There is a Czech pro­verb that says, “You live a new life for eve­ry lan­guage you speak.” For me, this is so true. When loo­king at things in dif­ferent lan­guages, you gain a new pers­pec­tive, and to learn other cultures and ways of life is so enri­ching. I hope Dan­ny and I can ins­pire you not only to reflect on the topics he touches on, but maybe also to learn a lit­tle bit of English eve­ry day, you never know where it might lead you!


I’m Dan­ny (aka Coa­ch­Dan­ny). I have a pas­sion: humans. Come with me and take this minute eve­ry day to explore what’s going on today and why is it tren­ding. Click here to get your dai­ly thought right on time for break­fast.

Coach Danny

See in me a trustworthy person who will not disappoint you. Although, like you, I have to work to make a living, your well being is my main interest and together we will find goals to make you feel fulfilled and proud of you. It has nothing to do with your bank account, your physical appearance or your material assets. Let’s be clear, we are working on fundamental levers for every human, whether you are a homeless person or part of royalty, you have these same levers. I’m Danny (aka CoachDanny). The people I work with are few, but they all have one thing in common. They share a common goal, self-fulfillment and more.
