I just finished the translation of my prologue from Dutch to English.
Just like the title of my Blog says....
It took me a couple of hours, and I don't know if it's any good at all in English but my grammar and spell checker (I use WhiteSmoke - in case you wondered. And I prefer American English, mostly because my story takes place in Boston) gave me an 8, on a scale from 1 to 10...
I'm using a dictionary and sometimes Google Translation, although I don't consider it my first choice or even an option.
The way I use Google Translation is as follows:
I copy my English text and translate it to Dutch. If I can understand it, a little in Dutch, then I guess it's OK enough to use it as the final text.
I'm now working on the first chapter, while listening to Jimi Hendrix and Heather Nova. Two great creative minds in music... is there a better way to find an inspiration?
