We're Making Some Headway...

Hey, everyone!

Alex is back from summer vacation and is working on the translation for the back cover, the inside headers, etc.

I daily await my InDesign Dummies book, as I am eager to brush up on my old skills.  It can't be very hard; it's just that I did a brain dump in 2013, never guessing I would need the skills five years later.

Can't find the original InDesign disk, either, so here's hoping I never get a corrupted program!

I am working hard at completing my paperwork for the shipyard, looking for temporary work while I wait, and so on.  The days are wide open, and I should have time for everything.  If the weather would just cool down a bit, I might get more done!

This is one of the things I do when I am not working on, or playing with, Battletech:

Life counters and Trackers for Magic, The Gathering.

Thanks for stopping by!

Another Try at a German Translation...

    A translator by the name of Alexander Sosedow recently contacted me about continuing the German translation of TRO:3063.

Of course, I would like to see it completed.

So I sent him the pertinent files and we will peck away at the project, one entry at a time.

No telling when it will be completed.  End of the year would be great, but these things take time and according to Alex, there are at least 100,000 words to translate.

But!  He has the InDesign files and so it's up to him.  I will have to dig up my InDesign 3.0 for Dummies and re-learn how to drop text in and resize the pictures - stuff like that.

He's busy.  I am too, having recently lost my job at Trulife due to a reduction in force at the Poulsbo plant.  Lots of things to do - re-purpose my 401k, look for a job, work out in preparation for qualifying for a shipyard position, look for a job... like that.

Wish us luck.

Thanks for stopping by.
