Challenge of not getting bored

Today I practiced interpretation using this video.

The speaker is a Japanese comedian / picture book writer and he runs a big community called “ONLINE SALON (Japanglish)” where more than 40,000 members enjoy contents and messages he delivers.

In my interpretation practice today, I simply listened to this video and did consecutive interpretation – some words were hard to come up in English:

自分を律する意味も込めて(0:35)

→ It also serves my own purpose of self-discipline

クラウドファンディングに(人々の)抵抗がなくなる

→ we now encounter less and less resilience against cloudfunding

クラウドファンディングが一般化するにつれ

→ as cloudfunding becomes common

福岡の学童

→after-school day care in Fukuoka city

圧倒的に稼ぐ

→ earn immense amount of money

One point he mentioned was particularly interesting to me was that we’re now in the era of community / group rather than the era of individual as anybody can post online.
