Astonishing video, @Igor Kozlov! I definitely want to taste that kind of travelling lifestyle sometime in the not so far future. In the meantime, there's a lot of groundwork to do and patience seeds to garden.

Competition is tight, oh my gosh!

Have an amazing Sunday! :11_blush:

Thanks, @Joshua Velasquez! Our Sunday is almost gone here in Russia though, but most of yours is probably still ahead ;)

I tought "funny" would be a good change from the standard

Good take indeed! I’m just a bit worried because Smartcat is not an offline tool :51_scream:

Other than that, perfect! :)

An excellent idea to put together miles and words in the end, and a very strong video!

P.S. Everyone, don’t worry, I won’t be judging, so whatever I say won’t affect the outcome ;)

my complicated story

That’s very touching, Hussain, and I got a lump in my throat when watching it. It made me think of how Smartcat allows people around the world to earn money through their capabilities alone — regardless of their geographical position and social status. That’s one of those things you can’t put in an investor report, but one that serves a much higher purpose. Thank you for reminding us all of this.

Actually it does work offline. If the page is already open on the laptop and the internet goes away you can go on translating and the translated segments are stored on the laptop, so when the connection comes back, no matter when (could also be 1 hour later or more) all the segments you have translated in the meantime are uploaded. To me this is working offline, as the page responds to shortcuts and all of it also without internet and nothing goes lost. E.g. I can translate offline while I'm travelling by train or plane and everything is saved anyway. So at the end of my journey the translation is finished and just needs downloading (with internet this time). But of course I didn't have enough time to explain it as I had to stick to 30 seconds :)

 Now that’s a lifehack, bravo! :12_slight_smile:
