Debbie returned to Norwich for the first of five visits this year, teaching the postgraduate Technological Tools for Translators module at the University of East Anglia. Yet another great set of enthusiastic students, not to mention the adorable wild rabbits hopping around the campus, certainly made the trip worthwhile.

Debbie’s most interesting translation project this month was a 7,000-word overview of the global mobile phone market for Orange. It’s wonderful to learn how different industries operate!
