¡Gracias y adiós!

Update includes the top 10 posts at time of closure.

I can’t remember why I started this blog – most of my translation work has always been from Dutch, French and German – but I guess it had something to do with the various frustrations of living in Barcelona. However, I now live in London, and Spanish official and corporate gringoisms have improved beyond all recognition, so that the blog may henceforth be presumed dead. Many thanks to all readers and (financial) contributors during however many years have passed, and if you still haven’t had enough, then you will find that I continue to do things with languages, including Spanish and Catalan, in my new public life as the Singing Organ-Grinder, followable at http://singingorgangrinder.com and https://twitter.com/elorganillero.
