The most unusual translation job I have had so far was about 15 years ago. It was the MBA thesis of the managing director of a leading domestic electrical manufacturer. Most of his thesis covered a plan for restructuring the staffing of the company, including a lot of compulsory layoffs. I had to the translation on his laptop, at his desk, locked in his office. I was allowed to see no-one, talk to no-one, and not mention a word about anything I had heard, read, or seen. I had to sneak into the office early in the morning and slide out in the evening doing the best I could to pretend I had never been there ... odd to say the least.
