A poet laureate (and rapper) for translators
Did you know that we translators have our own poet laureate — who’s also a pretty mean rapper?
Here’s a sample:
Ten thousand words for Friday
OK that should be fine
Two thousand words a day
A good steady pace I must say
Day one and all is going fine
It’s telly tonight with a glass of wine
Day two and a favourite client asks
Would I have time for a couple of tasks?
Did our translator make the deadline? Find out at Chatter and Verse, the new blog by Alison Hughes devoted to “‘poems’ about situations we translators, indeed freelancers in general, often face”.
