Running summary

I’m running now more often than before. I used to do an average of 60km to 80km per month, but in July I managed to run 185km! My longest distance in a month according to RunKeeper. I also did my personal best for 10km on the treadmill (44′). Looking forward to the Sabadell Half Marathon in September!

Correr por la mañana

¡Por fin lo he conseguido! Levantarme pronto e ir a correr.

Lo había hecho para estudiar, para trabajar, para coger vuelos, pero todavía muy poco para correr. Pero desde hace más de 10 días me levanto pronto, y voy a correr. Es la mejor forma de empezar el día. Se nota en la energía que llevas ya desde la mañana. De momento, hago una ruta de 10 km, en tiempos que oscilan entre 46 y 48 minutos dependiendo del día, lo que haya cenado antes, el tiempo de sueño, y curioso, lo que pienso mientras corro. ¡Aprovecho para darle vueltas a cosas sin ninguna interrupción!

Emi +3

Hace una eternidad. Tres años. Demasiado. Seguro que tú estás bien. Por aquí nos gustaría verte, aunque fuera de vez en cuando, ya sabes que con hijos el tiempo disponible se reduce. Pero siempre estarás ahí. Llenándonos de verde. Rodeados por el rojo. Rehuyendo el negro o los grises difuminados. Gracias. Un abrazo.

Running in Boston for the ALC Conference

Running in Boston

A couple of days ago I was in Boston, for the Association of Language Companies (ALC) annual conference. It was a great event, both in terms of content and networking. You can find my presentation here, and I also enjoyed a couple of others, that I will summarize soon here.

However, the objective of this post is to show this image I received from Don Shin from 1-stop translation. I run three days there, two of them alone because it was really early in the morning or late afternoon, but the best day was when I could share the training with Don, Saoussanne, and Lynn. Next time, more!

Life is about the people you meet and the things you do with them.

Of course I missed my other team members such as Robert, Tea, and Reinhard, with whom Miami was much more fun.

Who wants to join?

EliaND Munich

I was in Germany on May 2nd to attend my second Elia ND conference, which had a very interesting schedule. unfortunately, I could only make it on Thursday, but it was a great opportunity to learn new things, talk to friends, and also meet new ones.

Diego @ EliaNDWe had a presentation on our fruitful cooperation with Nova Language Services, which you can find here. The main idea we wanted to share was that another model for an LSP is needed, and in order to reach that point, a cooperation strategy might be relevant to sustain your competitive advantage. You can’t do everything on your own. After I introduced the theoretical framework for business model generation based on lean start-up principles, Guillem reviewed the three main outcomes for Machine Translation, our API, and fast social media translation. In case you are interested, let us know.

Looking forward to the next conference in Malta!

(btw, thanks Renato Beninatto for the photo)

Escola i Empresa

El passat dilluns 15 vaig fer una xerrada organitzada per FemCat a l’escola Sant Nicolau de Sabadell. Aquestes sessions d’una hora pretenen que els estudiants vegin emprendre com una opció vital, i les habilitats necessàries per ser-ho són aplicables a molts d’altres àmbits de la vida. Mireu-les: lideratge, disciplina, ceativitat, compromís, honestedat, iniciativa, assumpció de riscos, esperit d’equip, flexibilitat, presa de decisions, i esperit crític. Per la meva banda, cada cop que m’hi he d’enfrontar, reflexiono una mica sobre la vida i l’empresa, que sempre és positiu.

TMS Inspiration Days in Krakow

I was last Thursday and Friday in Krakow for the TMS Inspiration Days, which was a fruitful experience. The first day was about sales, business models, coaching, and scaling the company, and I found it really interesting. The main outcome: define a sales process at your company so as not to be so dependant on people. The second day was more technical, but good to learn how important are ERPs such as XTRF for the translation industry. Although there might be some learning curve, then you can only cut down costs and increase margin by automation.

Diego Bartolomé in KrakowI didn’t talk about machine translation (MT) this time, but rather about business models, how to analyze yours, define where you want to go, and then plan the actions to go from one point to the next one. It is the first time I give this talk in an industry conference, since in GALA Miami it was part of the KnowledgeFest. Of course, there are things where I can improve, but the general feeling was that the tool is useful for boosting your business. All together, we analyzed an example to transition from an SLV to an MLV, a challenging change.

I also run before each conference day, this time alone, 10 km on Thursday morning and 10.5km on Friday. I enjoy this way to see the city, Krakow’s river (Vistula) is an impressive zone to go running.

Good to get to know all of you!

Update (May 2013): You can find the photos of the event here.
