Feel like you could be getting more from your internet searches? Spend an hour with me and I'll share my best strategies for digging up what you need online. I like to focus on mental habits instead of technical stuff like boolean operators, although I do discuss a couple of technical tricks that are really useful for translators. We will spend most of our hour together looking at how to structure your inquiries and think like an online detective. I know what it feels like to hit the wall in an online search, and in my 15 years as a translator I've developed some helpful skills and attitudes for breaking through that wall. Searching can actually be the most fun part of your work day!
