Adventures from three consecutive days in the life of Mad Patent Translator. Just about every day brings an e-mail from a translation agency that either has a job for me, or wants to know more about me for its files about translators.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             https://theopenmic.co
