Le chocolat engendre-t-il des tueurs en série ? | Science & (High) Tech | Scoop.it
Le 10 octobre dernier est parue dans le fort sérieux New England Journal of Medicine une étude qui a fait les délices de la presse généraliste.

Iulianna's comment, November 18, 2012 2:50 AM
I was pretty enthusiastic about my EMT Postgraduate program in Specialised Translation and about all the things that I learnt, but now I find out from this article that the "EMT program is short-sighted and hypocrite, mostly targeting DGT’s interests (and possibly meeting only the ambitions of some vainglorious academics)."
What do you think my friends?

About Translation: Feeling lazy? A sure-fire way not to get work

About Translation: Feeling lazy? A sure-fire way not to get work | Science & (High) Tech | Scoop.it

Novice translators often get advice on how to get work and how to successfully conduct their freelance business.
