Need an Interpreter? Some Tips…

February 13, 2010

Over at China Law Blog, Lawyer Dan Harris gives some really good tips for speaking through an interpreter. While they’re written from an English-Chinese perspective, they are really applicable for any language. I’m a little late in posting it, as its been up for a week. I was over to Dan’s business partner Steve Dickinson’s house for Thanksgiving last year, and his wife gave me the best pecans I’ve ever eaten in my life. I asked where I could buy them and she said they come “from a friend.” Everyone’s got a secret source for everything good in that country, it seems. I understand, though. When I was in Korea and found something like real cheddar cheese at a particular store, I’d never tell other foriegners about it. Did that once and they cleaned the place out permanently.
