Thomas who?

I'm reading a Texas school history book and [flip, flip, flip] I can't seem to find him in there [flip, flip].

Well, if all else fails, there's always Tommy Jefferson, of "Harry's Law" fame.

Well, of course it's Tommy Jefferson from "Harry's Law"! Sheesh. Who else?

Did you catch Wednesday's "Jeopardy!" where one of the challengers described her job as "Localization editor"? Turns out she smoothes rough English translations of Japanese into native-sounding English. The weird part was that apparently she's just begun taking Japanese classes herself.

I did. Guess she relies on the accuracy of the translation she's working from - which could be dangerous.

No kidding, Ridger. Heck, there are times I can't even rely on the accuracy of my OWN initial draft translations! In such cases I check with native-Lusophone friends and colleagues, who are more than willing to save me from myself ;-)))
