Dear friends and colleagues,
What a year! 2009 has been full of surprises. First came our decision to disband as New World Linguists, then my family and I decided to move back to the United States from Costa Rica. Kara's family experienced some long deserved success in her husband's passion of raising and training thoroughbred horses. My husband also received some much deserved recognition in his passion, coffee, winning 5th place in Costa Rica's Cup of Excellence competition this year.
My decision to go it alone as a freelancer again has proven to be busy and fruitful! Thank you to all of my clients for making this year another rewarding year, and allowing me to do what I enjoy, and do it in the comfort of my home office! Word of mouth has been excellent advertising, and I want to thank my clients who have referred me to other colleagues. You are the best resume!
Many of my clients know that I was offered a job with the government. There was a glitch however, and because we had lived overseas for the last 6 years, I may not be eligible for the job. Therefore, in 2010, I will still be available to my clients (and new ones as well!) for translation, editing and proofreading. I look forward to continuing to work with you in the new year!
Have a safe and happy holiday season around the world, and I'll see you again in the 2010!
