Fifth Language of the Week

I'm on a bit of a roll this week. After having stories publisehd in English, Serbian and Welsh and another accepted in Estonian I have yet more news. The Scots translation of my flash fiction story Gone with the Window has been accepted by Lallans, a substantial print magazine from Scotland.

Scots is close enough to English that you can follow what it says, as long as you read it with a Scottish accent. :o) I received the proofs yesterday to check and send back. I especially enjoyed reading this translation as its the first time I can properly appreciate the language it's been translated into. The translator Steve Porter is currently working on translating The Gondolier into Scots too.
