Malta SPCA has just opened a charity shop in Triq Gorg Borg Olivier, Sliema. It's adjacent to no 24, and on the corner with Triq Guze Howard.

Stock seems to be mostly ladieswear, but also books and other stuff.

Opening hours are currently Mon-Sat mornings, but these are described as "temporary".

Perhaps a good place to buy things from and/or give things to.

Malta SPCA had a shop for books only at their centre in Floriana - has this closed, or is this new shop in addition to that ?

ps if you are in Gozo, you can also donate books and most things to Gozo SPCA, but not clothing

Their website has no details of either shop that I can spot, but does list the people who work in each, so looks like both are open

Thats good news - I kept hearing they were looking for premises but didn't know how long it was going to take.

They also have a Facebook page. You find a lot of information there (for example how & what to donate, opening hours & even photos of the new stock every month). http://www.facebook.com/pages/Paws-4-A-Cause-SPCA-Malta/111062045630221

I'm sorry, didn't want to break any rules Sad Just thought that this information could be useful.

My name is Kaia & I have been living in Malta for 6 months now. I work as a part-time journalist & translator.
Although I'm not british (I'm from Estonia), I have found some useful information from your forum.

Thank you & all the best,
Kaia

Hi Kaia

Thanks. That's interesting - are you freelance or do you have a job? Do you do any Internet work?

Sorry, if that's too many questions. No need to answer if you don't want to. It's just that this is our line of work too and it's all for online publications. I'm always curious to know how other people are getting on.

Join in and make some new friends! Very Happy

I'm freelance and I write mostly for an Estonian online women's magazine. Pluss occasional articles about Malta here and there Smile

My last big translation job was Richard Dawkins "God Delusion" from english to estonian.

I'm impressed too. I imagine there are a lot of Richard Dawkins fans on here. Dave and I have several of his books - very interesting.

Translating a whole book must take ages, though.

I'd think so, especially when it comes to ensuring consistency. I've never had to translate anything lengthy - I imagine it would be a nightmare to keep track of all the stylistic quirks! Shocked

Yes, it did took ages Smile - the whole process lasted more than two years - I started in december 2008 and the book came out just now.

And yes - it was quite a nightmare sometimes. His pithy writing style + all the different subject covered in this book made it a real challenge. All those sleepless nights & hours spent asking for advice and looking for the right words & correct scientific or religious terms...

I'm still amazed that it's finally published Smile Incredible!

Well done! I always find that short term projects are much easier than long term ones.
