Dear GLD Members,

How many of us dream of taking full advantage of our freelancer freedom, trotting around the globe while keeping our clients happy along the way? I know I do – and I’ve even dipped my feet in the water, spending six weeks stateside this past summer while continuing to serve a number of clients. In this Winter 2015 issue of interaktiv, two well-known GLDers show us that it can be done, taking us on a trip to the Greek island of Kythera and the British capital of London. I have one word for you: Fernweh!

Don’t miss the inaugural “Word from” our new Administrator, Michael Engley, the GLD list report by our eternally entertaining list master, Gerhard Preisser, a first- and second-timer account of ATA’s 55th Annual Conference in Chicago this past November, two – count ‘em – two translator profiles and much more.
