In memoriam
Jan 6, 2011

Today (January 6th) is Jack Slep’s 80th birthday. He has been a ProZ member for at least 10 years, and has been involved in translating in one form or another for about 60 years. He is an excellent translator in many fields, but in particular in petroleum engineering. His career paralleled mine in some ways. We both started as Air Force linguists - he in the USAF, I in the RAF. We found that we had that much and more in common, and have become good friends over the past few years, though ... See more
Today (January 6th) is Jack Slep’s 80th birthday. He has been a ProZ member for at least 10 years, and has been involved in translating in one form or another for about 60 years. He is an excellent translator in many fields, but in particular in petroleum engineering. His career paralleled mine in some ways. We both started as Air Force linguists - he in the USAF, I in the RAF. We found that we had that much and more in common, and have become good friends over the past few years, though we have never met. Who will join me in offering him congratulations on his 80th birthday?

Wishing you more years of health and happiness, USAF Jack!

From RAF Jack.

An amazing age for translation career Jan 6, 2011

I wish I were able to continue the jobs like Jack Slep. I do 34-year records of technical translation: EN-TH-JP, though!

A Happy Birthday! Jan 6, 2011

A Happy Birthday to our colleague! An impressive career.

 
Happy Birthday and how amazing! Jan 6, 2011

It's very nice to hear that both Jacks are two of the most long living translators in the industry. What a coincidence.

I didn't know that there was another Jack beside you, Mr. Doughty, but I want to congratulate Mr. Slep for his 80th birthday and at the same time also being able to carry on with his job for 50 years. And I would also like to say one more thing to Jack the topic starter, that you are also a wonder being a translator since 1953! I hope I could follow your footsteps

Happy Birthday Dear Jack :) Jan 6, 2011

This year, dear Lord, I'm 80 and
there's so much I haven't done:
I hope, dear Lord, You'll let
me live until I'm 81.
But then if I haven't finished
all I want to do, would you let
me stay awhile ... until I'm 82?
So many places I want to go.
So very much to see ... Do you think
you could manage to make it 83?
The world is changing very fast ...
There's so much in store ...
I'd like very much to live
until I'm 84.
... See more

I'd like very much to live
until I'm 84.
And if by then I'm still alive.
I'd like to stay until I'm 85. More planes will be in the air
so around I'd like to stick ...
and see what happens when
I'm only 86.
I know, dear Lord, it's much to ask
(and it must be nice in heaven).
But I would really like to enjoy a sunset,
and stay 'till I'm 87.
I know by then I won't be fast,
and sometimes will be late: but
it would be pleasant to be around
at 88!
I will have seen so much and had
a wonderful time, so I'm sure
that I'll be willing to leave
at 89. ... MAYBE!!!

Sleep, sleep hooooooraaaayyyyy Jan 6, 2011

Maybe he did wake up now!
Please look carefully in the mirror when you shave your beard. Shaving is context-sensitive like translating. Maybe you him descry somewhere within the framework of your mirror.

Keep Flying High, Sir Jack... Jan 6, 2011

...and showing THE lanes for us!

Including the lane to the next milestone, 100.

Well, 100, 120 and so on! Why "The ANCIENT Translator"?! You may change that motto: you are a young energetic man! Jokes apart.

Perhaps, this is partially thanks to those challenging translations from RUSSIAN... This activity rejuvenates you indeed!...
