7 Are interpreters human?


  1. Yes! I liked it! The best one ever! :)

  2. I nearly laughed my head off:))

  3. On quite a few occasions, I was required to translate during lunch for the trainer and the trainees. The food was usually very good, but I never had time to eat it all (or anything close to that) because they kept talking. So, eventually, I just disregarded the etiquette and just went on eating while translating, or translating while eating. Not very nice, but healthy. Otherwise, I would've been left hungry and frustrated.
    Anyway, I enjoyed the joke.

  4. Thank you very much, moichispa & Arkadi.

    Mimi, that's very funny. I hope you won't mind if I use the idea for a future strip!

  5. XD

    I really liked it!

    We're not a gadget.

  6. I had a similar experience, but when I got to the table the people I was interpreting for were horrified that there was such an order and insisted that I join in - had some great food and wine and got invited to Malta to do some interpreting on the strength of it :) My colleagues weren't on such hospitable tables, though, and spent the whole evening looking thoroughly miserable ...
