These days, whenever you start doing anything, you always end up doing sales. I developed a great new course but now I have to write an ad for it in order to sell it to colleagues and students. I started working on a translation order for a petroleum company but it turned out that what they want me to do is translate an endless series of sales pitches.
By the way, these sales pitches I’m translating are very effective. After a week of work, I’m experiencing a profound desire to buy compressor fluid for my air turbine.
