Yes, January was slow for me this year in terms of the amount of work coming in, but THIS WAS A GOOD THING. It meant that I had plenty of time to sort out my tax affairs and end of the year admin and sort out things like a leaky water pipe around the house. Now we are only a few days into February and I'm more or less booked up for the month, which makes up for a thankfully slower January.

No, it was about normal for me Feb 6, 2019

If I compare to last year, January was about normal: I invoiced almost the same amount, but if I compare to two years ago, it’s a completely different story: January was an exceptional month, the best ever! I hope I’ll get a chance to have a month like that again…

About normal Feb 6, 2019

Just about right. No complaints, except that my dog has been sick and a very large chunk of the money I made went for veterinarian bills.

The first week was busy, then nothing happened until February. I suppose this is not that unusual, as summer is often a bit slow, but then, with a small language, what is normal?

The beginning of the month was absolutely crazy. And the last week was absolutely quiet. But back to the normal now

very slow Feb 6, 2019

I had taken some days off around New Year; worked for a week, then went away with my family for a week; back for half a week, then became sick and took the rest of the week off - months do not come much slower than last January for me!

Very bad in Brazil Feb 6, 2019

Very, very bad, as has been the norm since 2017 at least.

yes and no Feb 6, 2019

In terms of new inquiries and the normal flow of smaller projects, it was probably a bit on the slow side. I felt very busy, however, because I was wrapping up a large project that had started late last year.

It's the same every year Feb 6, 2019

These polls are not posted simply at random, but probably because the translation industry feels the pinch in January/February every year. I can't speak for everybody else, naturally, but I have always found January to be an exceedingly difficult month in comparison to the rest of the year.

Very bad Feb 7, 2019

The worst January and the worst month I've seen in a long time.
Income in February is 1/3 of the expected due to that.

pretty good Feb 7, 2019

For me it was about the same as last year, despite taking a week off to be with friends who came over for a convention. And then I got a big order that will take me right to the end of February so February will be much better than last year.
