What do you mean that you don’t know who Mox is? Shame on you! Mox is the funniest translator there is, created by Alejandro Moreno-Ramos. Mox is a young but well educated translator. Two PhDs, six languages… and he hardly earns the minimum wage. Whenever you are tired of translation, you should take a break by visiting Mox’s Blog. Believe me, Alejandro has provided the translation world with much needed smiles.
But the good news is that Alejandro has (finally!) published a book on Mox, namely Mox’s Illustrated Guide to Freelance Translation.
Mox is my favorite, but I also love the other characters in Alejandro’s cartoons, such as Pam, the evil project manager, Lisa, his lovely girl-friend, the incredible turtle Mina, or Calvo, the cynical beared has-seen-it-all that looks a little bit like me… 😉
If you urgently need a break from translation, I highly recommend this book. Not only is it funny, it is also as real as life!
