On the professional side, I consider I am a trusted person in the localization industry. This is a global achievement as a result of many smaller continuous achievements.
On my personal life, I have been lucky with my family and friends. This is not my personal merit but is a nice thing to enjoy.
For translators, I would recommend them to get familiar with technology and adopt new trends quickly. This will optimize their daily work and they will feel more comfortable with any translation request, being able to focus on the linguistic side of translation.
For newcomers to the industry, I would recommend to consider all the available jobs that exist besides pure translation: terminology, localization engineering, testing, sales, technical or creative writing, multilingual content management, computational linguistic etc.
