Reading the fine print

Some words of advice for aspiring translators:

Read the fine print
In my most recent post, I mentioned that I finally ordered the DPHD. Even though it was no longer as cheap as I originally thought. I also ordered a book completely unrelated to translation.

So today, I check the confirmation e-mail, and I find out that the latter will arrive within 5 to 12 business days, but the DPHD will arrive by late June or early July. Bleah.

Mind you, this is quite as serious as say, signing a contract and not noticing that it requires you to give away your firstborne. But still.

Read the fine print. Read the fine print. Read the fine print…
