This thread is part of the Translator playground
: a place for translators to have fun, to network, to learn, and to hone their translation or linguistic skills. See the announcement here
Need a quick break from work? In this forum translators and language professionals can share quotes about translation, tongue twisters and word plays, translation challenges, etc.
All are welcome to participate and to add new items to this and the other areas of the Translator playground
; have fun with it! If you need help or would like to propose an addition to the Translator playground, contact site staff through the online support system
I first thought of it when browsing the archived polls (of "do you rent an office/work from home/ have a separate room for work" kind): as self-employed freelancers, we are bound to have the most diverse and unusual kinds of workspace solutions, including the weird ones (like working in the kitchen/on the beach/on the plane, and so on). The idea is to take a snapshot of your current workspace and to post it anonymously (with a moderator's help?) in a forum thread. The other members can then tag the posted photos and/or vote for "the most professional-looking freelancer's workspace"/'the most high-tech one"/"the funniest"/"the messiest"/ etc. No cheating or stock photos are allowed
