PROFESSIONAL TRANSLATION SERVICES [Different types of translation services] “An opening gambit at a social or business gathering is for the person next to you to ask what you do. When the person finds out your profession the inevitable response is, ‘Oh so you’re a translator – that’s interesting’ and, before you have a chance to say anything, the next rejoinder is, ‘I suppose you translate things like books and letters into foreign languages, do you?’.

When faced with such a verbal attack you hardly have the inclination to respond”.
