Our little gang of translation buddies

Part of our business plan for our guest cottages (in my head, anyway) is to appeal to as large a market as possible. One way of achieving this is to make as many nationalities as we can feel comfortable when they visit. So, I have begun to compile my little gang of translation buddies. The idea is to offer a holiday to a non-English speaking friend, in return for a little translation work – maybe the basic website, and some of the guest literature in the cottages. I’m going to be quite fussy, however, with my invitations.

I’d like to welcome the inaugral member: Bjorn, from Sweden, currently living in Barcelona. We recently worked together on a trip to Shanghai, and I thought – here’s definitely someone I would like to have visit! There might also be a BOGOF offer to be had here – his new husband is Brazilian (yes… I’m sure their children would be beautiful!)
