Translation error Jun 15, 2013

I assume it must have been Interpreting service that was involved, rather than Translation- someone who translates on site and speaks, not writes

Yes Jun 15, 2013

that's why it said 'sic.' consistently after 'translator' and 'translation'.

Interpreters need sleep Jun 15, 2013

Preferably sleep in a nice hotel and all, no jet lag, no airport/into-the-jammed-city-traffic fatigue, no nothing.

And they need more loving from the society as a whole.

Oh dear Jun 17, 2013

That must be truly mortifying if you're the interpreter. Aside from that, it's downright amusing.
