Hi! My name is RoxAnne, and I'm a lurker. :D I was wondering if this group would do me a favour and answer a few questions about being a translator or interpreteur, if you are one or are in the process of becoming one. I will be using it for research on a job presentation in my English class.

1. What draws you to the job of being a translator/interperateur?

2. What education have you gone through?

3. What's the best part of your job?

4. What languages are you currently fluent in?

5. How many languages do you plan to learn?

6. Where do you work, and what exactly does your job entail?

7. What benefits do you currently have?

8. How much money do you make (estimate)?

9. What do you love most about your job?

Thanks everyone for helping me!

I haven't seen a post about this yet, so I figured it would make a good first post... I get WIRED magazine when I can, and last month's issue had a pretty cool article (on page 30 if you're that interested) about linguistic oddities.
You Lousy Tingo, You! (WIRED 03/06)Collapse )

So would old Internet users be large lobsters? I'm thinking I should look into that book...

Well I hope you found that interesting! Just let me know if it's not appropriate for this comm.

jinx: Another translation request

Hi everybody! For a song I’m writing, I need the following lines translated into any African language. Any help would be greatly appreciated – thank you.

“Witch doctor, medicine woman, queen of the Earth
You make me fly with your power.”

EDIT: Also, phonetically rendered transcriptions would be fantastic, as well as the official spelling (IPA takes too long to read!).

Hey guys; I have a quick question about something I "learned" in French class today. We were watching the DVD that goes along with our book, and it gives "words and phrases that you may not know, and their English equivalents" before the sketch. One of the phrases on today's sketch was "Comme ça, ça roule." The DVD translated this as "That's cool." Can anyone tell me what context that is? Basically, whether it's closer to "That's alright" or "That's really neat." Unless, of course, it's something else that I'm not thinking of at all. ^^; I was just wondering. I wouldn't want to use it in the wrong context!

Thanks in advance! ♥

Could you please explain me in which situations it would be polite to use the second person of singular (tu/du/ты form) when adressing to people in your country?

And in particular, what should I do if I have written a letter to a respected belgian person who is much older then me and recieved an answer adressed with "tu", which would be the most correst way to adress my next letter?
(This peson know I'm in the mid 20ies being in late 40ies himself)

I have already asked this question, but I have got different answers (my eljay entry).

Thank you.
