Translation is a hard work.But, I love this work. And i am freelance translator. sometimes, i feel really puzzled when the source work is really poorly written. So, at that time, i might feel quite tired, and even want to stop translation. That's really boring. But, life is going on, and everything will go on. How about you?

That is why they say translations are not a job, it's a passion.

Translation is more difficult than creation. Jun 3, 2005

Yes, translations are more than paid-job. They are the passion for the true translators. Doing translations is much harder than creating own writing. I'm do writing as my hobby and translation also. I enjoy writing own proses and phrases a lot. But on the other hand, it's my passion to take initiative for target readers demand. I work not only for money, rather for richness of target language readers' knowledge.
