Sorry about the lack of posts lately but work has been insane. In fact, I’m just taking a break from my current translation (working on a Sunday! Whatever next?) to share with you two interesting language and translation-related facts I learned last night.
1) What do Walt Disney Productions, Agatha Christie, Jules Verne, Lenin and Enid Blyton have in common?
2) We all know now that in Sudan, it is illegal to call a teddy bear Mohammad. In France, what is it illegal to call a pig?
