RIP Miguel Llorens September 28, 2012Posted by Jill (@bonnjill) in Random musings.
Kevin Lossner just reported that Miguel Llorens died two weeks ago. I am completely shattered. I loved his rapier wit, which is summed up perfectly in the last thing he ever wrote on his blog (in a comment):
Yes, I suppose I am a conservative when it comes to the translation business if innovation implies doing really shitty work.
His response to Lionbridge Vice President Didier Helin, which was posted on the No Peanuts website, had me almost falling out of my chair. He was just brilliant.
Rest in peace, Miguel. I for one will dearly miss your blog posts and the gift you had in cutting through the bullshit of the MT industry. His Financial Translation Blog will live on until the domain expires and is worth reading. I for one would be more than willing to pay for the next year if any of his family members sees this post. His brilliance needs to live on even after his passing.
You will be missed.
