Translator For a Day

Today I realized that I really miss my very first career which was that of a translator. Translation is great for the following reasons:

  • you don’t need to interact with people;
  • you can spend all day in complete silence;
  • every word brings you money, so you can feel like you are creating money by the minute;
  • it requires a high degree of concentration which makes it akin to a video game in its potential of restoring one’s psychological health;
  • very little thinking is required;
  • it’s very peaceful;
  • I’m very good at it.

And now I need to go translate some more.

  1. This is really interesting. I think I would love it for a while, but would get tired of it and want to do something else.
