Many many thanks to all the people who made this possible!

I am happy and honored to be part of this network!

I look forward to seeing it develop into a real and beneficial resource for professional translators, and I hope I can contribute to it as well.

So far I'm impressed with quality and detailed level of thought and feedback people are putting in, plus the fact that people are motivated by what's good for the industry rather than their own self-interest.
