On Monday I received a phone call from a temporary employment agency (like Manpower, Adecco, and so on), where I had applied when I had just finished my MA.
‘So, you are still doing translations only. Is that right?’
(sigh) ‘I am doing translations’ (and would like to emphasize the full stop here)
‘Ok, thanks. Bye’
Dear readers, I had a very Mox-like feeling, but I only had a laugh about the mystery (the ignorance?) surrounding translations. Any suggested replies if this is happens to me again (but hopefully not!)?
