Not sure what to call it: a sunny or foggy morning at Lovers Point Cove. Pacific Grove, CA.

Wow, today my Klout score hit an all-time high (my score is typically in the high 50s). Oh, but wait: What's the date today?

The next issue of MDÜ, the official publication of the German Bundesverband der Dolmetscher und Übersetzer (Federal Association of Interpreters and Translators) is dedicated to technical translation. I am happy to announce that I am contributing an article on the importance of doing project-specific terminology work for technical (and really, any other type of) translation project.

For those of you who are on Twitter: I just sent my 37000th tweet about translation-/localization-related opportunities (mainly jobs and events). And by the way: I research and write each tweet myself (and I'm not getting paid for it, either). http://owl.li/Jl0TK

Google+ tells me that my profile has had approx. 60000 views, but what Google doesn't tell me is where my followers are located. Take a page out of Twitter's book, Google+! Twitter Analytics gives me detailed geolocation data - for free! That's how I know that 3/4 of my followers on Twitter live outside of the U.S. http://owl.li/IFD5G

Did you know that LinkedIn provides you with detailed demographic information about your followers, including job titles, industries, and geographic location? If you didn't, here is the path that takes you there: LinkedIn Homepage>Profile>Your Updates>Followers

Isn't it ironic: The year I left academe to join OmniLingua Worldwide, my work got by far the most citations in academic publications? Source: Google Scholar.

As the dad of a bunch of multisport athletes, I came to realize that one way of looking at their careers is as a sequence of accidents and injuries. The latest: My oldest Hanna had a crash in the Chico Stage (Bicycle) Race this weekend. Don't worry, she's fine (didn't even need stitches) and is still competing.

It's raining, it's pouring on the Peninsula! Since I have nothing better to do on this Sunday, I decided to write a short blog on LinkedIn Pulse about a new (and as of yet undocumented) LinkedIn feature I recently discovered.
Recommendations are among the most valuable assets you can have on your LinkedIn profile.The big issue with recommendationsMy LinkedIn profile has more than 70 recommendations, and I am very grateful for each and every one of them. However, up until recently, I have had mixed feelings about some new recommendations that ‘replaced’ an older one that was either written by a well-known titan of the industry or one that was simply more flattering tha...

How is translating a user manual different from translating, say an article in a trade journal, and what do translation buyers and linguists need to do to ensure high quality and short turnaround times in 'product-centric' translation projects? Find some of the answers here: http://owl.li/IDBZU

Story
Tagline
Lives and breathes translation tools and processes, is in it for the long run (literally)
Introduction
I have re-invented myself many times over the course of my professional career: Truck Driver, Life Guard, Photographer, English Teacher, Creative Writer, Advertising Consultant, Translator, College Professor, Salesperson, Program Manager, Consultant to Fortune 500 organizations. What's next? Anything is possible! 
Bragging rights
Crossed the Alps on foot (GR 5 route from Lake Geneva to the Mediterranean) in 26 days. Ran my fastest marathon in 3:32h. Have mastered the art of circular breathing (inhaling and exhaling at the same time). Biggest accomplishment: Raising three daughters (at times single-handedly!), and even so they have turned out alright.
