We were not constructed for sitting at a desk all day hammering on the keyboard

You're exactly right ! Oct 10, 2007

As you said, we're not designed for doing repetitive motion.
Folks gathering here have much higher risks to develop repetitive strain injuries
Better start doing something before it's too late !

Amen to that... Oct 15, 2007

Yes, it really is a problem for translators. My wife is having problems with shoulder pain and the nerves in her fingers, and I am convinced it is all from sitting typing all day. We really need to learn better posture, and also to CHARGE MORE AND WORK LESS!! What good does it do to anyone if we take on a 50-page project to be done for tomorrow and sit typing for 18 hours straight?!

I won't do it anymore, my health matters too much to me...

I want what I deserve (money, I mean) !! Oct 16, 2007

Howdy,
I don't mean to be nosy or anything. Just forgive my rudeness to ask you this question. Does your wife have either "carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS)" or "thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS)"?
Well, I've had severe form of bilateral TOS for over 8 years and underwent surgery over 7 years ago (am still on pain relievers, NSAIDs).
I hadn't involved in translation business when I first developed TOS. Actually, having TOS lead me to be a translator. Life's ironic isn't it (lol).
"IF" your wife is looking for some information on her problems, tell her to check this site.

I'm one of the old timers in TOS community in this site.
