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.

Watch this video to learn how to interpret 50% in sign languageicon_smile.gif (that exact bit can be watched at 1' 19'' of the video).

The end is also very funny.

Now offering ASL <> EN translations Nov 7, 2012

My mother is an ASL (American Sign Language) interpreter and has been for about 25 years (more actually, but she would kill me if I gave away her age). I'm e-mail this to her now!

The part I liked most was "letting children use these facilities", that was so accurate, ha-ha-ha!
