MY PROWESS AS A TRANSLATOR GROWS...

Get this...a friend of mine in the U.S. on a chat board wrote to me and asked me to help her understand a site about the Pistons that was written in Japanese. I did some brief translations of the site for her which she sent to a guy she knows who has a Michigan fan blog--mgoblog)

The guy posted the translations on his blog and the person who created the original Japanese site (AmigoClub) linked back to the translations. Then, the local paper talked about it and used the translations I did in an article! (Detroit Free Press: Steve Schrader's playoff dribbles).

I checked it out and also the links that appeared in the article and also found a comment by the original creators of the Japanese website who now want me to translate their entire website. LOLOLOL

Loving this!

2 of you feeling verklempt. Tawlk amongst yourselves:

Hey -this was so cool! As a Piston fan, it was great to see fans on the other side of the world - as a 'Chrissy' fan...nobody credited you anywhere that I could see, for doing the translation!

The Pistons lost today as well - they are down 3 games to 2 in the eastern conference finals.

**Don't translate that anywhere!
