typical translator Aug 29, 2005

Oh, I've been waiting for this topic to come upicon_smile.gif

According to one of my friends, the typical translator lives on coffee and cigarettes. Coffee-drinking and chain-smoking equal to "translator" in his definition. Well, it fits for me: I can't work without either one. How about you?

What, no tea? Aug 29, 2005

In true British style, I am constantly drinking tea at my desk. I think if I drank coffee in the same way I would be climbing the wallsicon_smile.gif

Chips, peanuts, nachos, pistachios, etc. Aug 29, 2005

With a X-cola drink.

But most of the time, zero food.

British Breakfast Tea... Aug 29, 2005

It tastes really good. But I am wondering if it's as refreshing as Chinese green tea...Maybe it is.

Can't answer the question, since you can only choose one answer Aug 30, 2005

At least "all of the above" should be a choice! icon_smile.gif

What about... Aug 30, 2005

beer, wine (white & red), whiskey or why not a longdrink in order to cope with a tough translationicon_wink.gif And some people might prefer to smoke other stuff than tobaccoicon_wink.gif

Another poll from the department "not very necessary polls".

Cigarettes ?? Aug 30, 2005

I find it surprising how many people appear to eat or drink cigarettes at work !!

They have become so expensive that I can no longer affird to eat or drink them so I just smoke them from time to time while drinking my coffeeicon_smile.gif

Tea and chocolate... Aug 30, 2005

Exactly, I really missed the option "tea" - I never have acquired a taste for coffee.

As an emergency solution I chose "chips/snacks" because chocolate comes a close second...icon_wink.gif
