Joys of collaboration

 This is to tell the network about a book I translated – as a result of being part of Mikronet. The benefits of networking are amazing! I was contacted by Jonna Jepsen who has written an excellent book about the hidden handicaps that many prematurely born children suffer, and which only become evident as the children grow older. The impact on children, parents and family can be severe and Jonna’s book is really practical – there is a problem, what can be done to help?

It was quite a challenge to translate the book as I usually work with manuals, business letters and presentations. The real pleasure was the very close collaboration with Jonna – together we had to find links to international sites of relevance, find medical research results and the legislation dealing with help and support available for prematurely born children in the various countries as the original book covered Danish conditions.
