|The town of Tinghir, Morocco|
I worked as an analyst-programmer for over 20 years before deciding to work as a translator. Three years ago, I found myself in the position to be able to travel for several months, while continuing to work as a translator and so, I took the opportunity.
What languages do you speak and what made you become a translator?
- I wanted more freedom in my job and to be able to work from home.
- I wanted to be away from big cities (my previous job in IT obliged me to stay in big cities because that's where big companies are, and where I could expect to find a job in IT.)
