A few weeks ago, we received an e-mail from Elena de Terán Bleiberg, a lovely colleague in Spain who is both a medical doctor and a translator. Oh, and she's a cartoonist, too, one who chooses a female translator as the progagonist of her very attratively drawn minimalist cartoons. Her sidekick is a cute little mouse, who is also quite wise and has some good insight. His or her name (we are not sure!) is simply Mouse, hence the title of the cartoons "Tina and Mouse." We are particularly fond of the lead character's name, as one of our dearest friends is also named Tina.
Elena has worked in the translation industry in a variety of roles (freelancer, project manager, editor, third-party reviewer, director of medical translation services, etc.) since 1991, and she's published more than 40 Tina and Mouse cartoons in 2013 and 2014. Be sure to check out her blog. We haven't been this excited about translation cartoons since we discovered the great Mox, who seems to be on a bit of a hiatus at the moment.
We immediately fell in love with them and wanted to share them with all our readers! Have a look at all of them here.
