Translating 60,000 fascinating words on Switzerland's energy transition policy. I'd forgotten that a refrigerator was basically a heat pump, and that 𝘱𝘶𝘳𝘪𝘯 is slurry, liquid manure. My "Ah, yes, I remember it now!" moments.
Signs of the times? I'm translating an increasing number of medical, pharma and psychology studies, results of assays on polluants - and spray gun catalogues for pastry chefs.
Translated 4 instruction booklets for cleaners on how to clean CV19 infected premises and toilets. Seriously, I've never translated a more important document set!
La traduction d'un Contrat-Cadre de Service (Master Services Agreement) de 30k mots pour une société d'experts en sécurité informatique m'a occupé pendant ces derniers jours. Prochain projet - des documents douaniers pour l'importation des armes à feu.
Just sent off a translation of a decision by the Swiss Federal Tribunal, only to find that there was a duplication of effort: the client had done a translation of it last year. Still, they will honour the invoice. And it was an interesting judgment to translate, too!
