Translator Reactions

We made a post about interpreter reactions a few months back. It’s only fair we did one for translators as well!

Here are some ways translators may react to situations they encounter every day:

When someone calls you an interpreter

 

When your friends think you live a glamorous translator life

 

When you attend a conference

 

When someone says they’ll use an online translator to translate a document

 

When a client gives you a 40,000 word project and they want it the next day

 

When you submit a project 1 minute before the deadline

 

When your CAT tool keeps crashing

 

When you take on more projects than you can handle

 

When a proofreader doesn’t agree with your translation

 

When you turn in a project early and don’t have to work the weekend

 

When you meet a fellow translator

 

When you tell someone that you’re certified

 

When you’re asked to translate a piece of literature
