Life in a different language?

A lot of visitors to this blog arrive here via a search for “life in a different language” or “life in different languages.”

I am curious what they are seeking. If you are one of these visitors, how about describing in a comment what you were looking for? Was it about living in different languages, or about the translation of the word “life” into other languages, or something else?

I was searching for an advert i saw, because i want to be able to think or dream in a different language.

I'm not that kind of user, but my first idea was that they were looking for something about living in a country with different language.

And my first thought was about how to translate this word into another language.

Like Dark Templest I was trying to remember a URL from a TV advert.

I was searching information regarding a translator (if there exists any) that translates into the third language,i.e. which translates from a SL to a TL without using its mother tongue language.

I'm trying to get some translation jobs. I'm not a pofessional, I don't have credentials, I just want to get into this world.
Do you have any tip for me?
My mother tongue is portuguese.

Transparencia, here are some things you can do.

Dedicate some time to reading the articles and posts at these sites:
ProZ forum on Getting Established
ProZ articles on Getting Established
TranslatorsCafé articles on becoming a translator

Some books and other resources for people considering becoming a translator: Corinne McKay’s resources, Anita Karlson’s book, and Alex Eames’s book.

Search for translation-related mailing lists (e.g. on Yahoo!groups), especially in any lists for Portuguese-language translators, and join them.

Looking for translation in other language than my mother language. It's interesting to get to know the same word in every language with unique accent.
