Another one coming up

I know you’ve been hearing a lot about this project for more than two months now. But what can I do, I don’t have anything new and exciting to share here as I rarely leave the house to attend functions and events for bloggers. My topics are limited to whatever happens within the confines of my own home or recent development about my kids and husband. I haven’t shared anything grand, I wish I could. Anyway, we’ll be starting on another set of project tomorrow. The project was emailed to hubby this afternoon including the program to be used. I wish the terms will be easier to translate this time. What if I encounter a term like Symbol LS2208? Would it be easier to translate? Well, according to our project guide, brand names aren’t supposed to be translated. So, I hope the new set of terms for translation would include more brand names this time. Lol

Carry on

I’m up to my neck with this report so I don’t think I will need a generic Phentermine (diet pill) to supress my appetite right now. Being busy with a job like this will surely affect your appetite to the max. However, I don’t skip meal just because I’m busy. I need the energy to keep my mind and body work well; otherwise it would be very difficult to think coherently. Hubby and I are doing everything we can to keep up to the phase of the project so the bosses will be happy with our performances and give us more works to do.

Project delay

I was expecting my friend to call me yesterday regarding the project (Microsoft localization). She said she will send me the style guide and glossary as basis for the project. I’m still waiting for her communication until now. I’m not sure if it’s a sign of another delay. But we are all targeting May 3, that’s tomorrow, to begin the translation project simultaneously.

If say, the schedule will be moved for a couple of days, I might use it to run my errands including the review of prototype 37-c which is nearing its deadline. I might also use the day to enroll my kids and niece to school and buy school supplies for them.

May 3

is the date that hubby and I are looking forward to because it’s the start of our new project. Whatever compensation we get from this project will be used to pay for our kids’ tuition this school year. We will have a budget to buy their books, school supplies and pair of new uniforms. I hope we’ll get the job right so there will be more offers like this to come.

I received an email from our project coordinator yesterday informing me and hubby about the schedule. She explains that the project will be in four batches and each batch should be completed in 12 to 18 days. We are also responsible for the proofreading of our job. I wish I can tell you the job would be easy. But our officemate said sentences are far easier to translate than terminologies. We will be dealing with a lot of terminologies in this one. Tomorrow she’ll send us the glossaries and the style guide.

I hope I can still find time to write opportunities for my blogs especially about life insurance. One company that offers an opp related to it requires bloggers to include the description “life insurance quotes are cheap” in the post. This is easy. I hope all paid post companies will have easier requirements like them.

Wish us good luck for the new project. It will be a busy week ahead. 🙂

Busy days ahead

Remember my post about an online job that is supposed to start next month? My former officemate who tap our assistance is requesting hubby and I to familiarize ourselves with the translation program that we will be using for the project. We hope to get the hang of the intricate instructions before the project arrives. This is going to be one tough job because we are expecting long hours of work and sleepless night here. However, my officemate has assured us that all our efforts will be compensated well because this project is long-term and big budgeted. We are excited about this job and at this point we should be physically fit to keep up with the demand of the new opportunity. Should we start stocking up on multi-vitamins? How about a remedy for dark circles under eye? I don’t want to look like a zombie for not getting enough sleep lol. Seriously speaking, we are thankful for this blessing. Keep them coming. 🙂
