Fairly straightforward but enjoyable.

I may be wrong of course but I can only count 32 highlighted cells and also, is 44a not a normal clue?

I've checked several times and there are definitely 33 cells that are highlighted. Most likely source of error is in one of the thematic titles in particular -- check the translation very carefully.

44ac seems fine to me. Quite a few fairly easy clues, I thought, and a nice puzzle -- hopefully fairly accessible, too. One of the translations in particular seemed rather easy!

Managed a break from work to do this. Still have to crack last week's code.
Hi all - nice, gentle jog this week, with some enjoyable clueing, I thought. Novalis, I finally cracked last week's code - check my comment on that thread to see if it might help.
I particularly enjoyed the "Every other hour... Every other day..." pair. Fairly transparent clues, but fun all the same.
Hi Christana!

Many thanks for that. I shall have another look tomorrow but I am not even sure I have identified all four words yet. Now is not a good time to look as I am feeling rather jaded having spent the day starting the PEX report and getting material together for standardisation purposes for next year.

Nice puzzle but slightly weak to have GOING appear twice in the grid, creating potential ambiguity with the highlighting.
Yes, that was a bit careless, though the intended highlighting is fairly obvious. Perhaps Samson also missed a trick by not referencing 18a in 45a ?
