hello all As part of our effort to bring you the latest news, articles, ideas and everything translation related, we are proud to add "word of the day" to the content one might encounter at onehourtranslation blog. Word of the day will be taken from various sites (i.e dictionary.com, Wikipedia, wordsmith.org etc'). We will also include pronunciation, definition and, since this is a translation blog, a translation into several languages. Feel free to suggest more sites, offer other translations and debate over the exact translation of a word. So, without further ado, the first word of the day is- (drum roll…) Colloquial pronunciation- \kuh-LOH-kwee-uhl\ Adjective Definition: dictionary.com- haracteristic of informal spoken language or conversation; "wrote her letters in a colloquial style"; "the broken syntax and casual enunciation of colloquial English"; hence, unstudied; informal; as, colloquial phrases; a colloquial style.

The translation industry is a relatively small one but it’s also a highly competitive one. Basically, do your research on a translation agency prior to making initial contact and it will certainly pay off; perhaps not immediately because there may not be any work available at the time, so just be patient. Your application must stand out above the rest, and by following these simple steps you should have no problem whatsoever in achieving your translation goals.
