A client has me doing a project in France, Germany and Belgium in the next few weeks. This means I will be conducting ethnographic interviews in the home with the EU consumer. This will be a 3 week anthropological fly over of a world that I need to know better. Should be fascinating.
But here’s the deal. I need someone to help translate these interviews, linguistically and culturally.
It looks as if I might have someone to do the German translation. (This thanks to Russell Davies, who very kindly posted a "help, please" notice on my behalf. And if I lucky enough to get the guy who stepped forward, I will be thrilled. He is sensationally qualified. This makes it official. Russell knows the most interesting people. And this too is now confirmed: planners are curious, observant, thoughtful, and inventive and we should all now be stocking our networks with them.)
But I still need someone to help translate in France and Belgium. If there is someone who has really good translation skills and wants to spend a couple of weeks in Europe, please let me know. It should be amazing fun.
