It's almost a miracle.
One thing I never thought I would need in my current job is my Japanese language ability. But, here it is, finally an opportunity to show a little bit more of what I can do: I've been appointed as an interpreter.
Of course, the project team neglected to confirm this to me after months of silence. It now also turns out that I am not really available anymore during the new period.
Nevermind all that. It only leaves me with the slight detail that I haven't actually properly spoken Japanese for over 1,5 years now. Not to mention the fact that I will be interpreting during (what are likely to be) highly technical tests. Yikes. I definitely have some brushing up to do!
