Down And Out In Porto and London

I translated my CV into portuguese today to apply for a job in Porto. Long story, to do with Brexit and dual citizenship. TBH, it’s unlikely to happen (although not quite as unlikely as the job in Germany someone tried to get me onto last week), but I’m someone who believes in flying a lot of kites and seeing which one gets me electrocuted.

Anyway, it was very interesting and involved trawling through a lot of tech manuals looking for words specific to the tech niche I live in. Here are a few, which I think I’ll need to turn into a memrise deck at some point.
