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.


How do you feel when you read a translation you have done in the past and already delivered to the client? Is your reaction similar to any of the ones depicted in this image?

... except the orange flame.

I'm still struggling. Every time I solve a problem, clients just find something even more challenging. Or maybe the world just moves on!
