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
