2 Character presentation

Mox is a young but well educated translator. Two PhDs, six languages... and he hardly earns the minimum wage.

Lena is Mox's girlfriend. She will never understand why all translation projects are urgent and tries to convince Mox that there is indeed a world outside his computer.

Calvo is a senior translator who went to the dark side. He is believed to be an excellent linguist who prefers rather to use Gurgle translate. He enjoys charging abusive fees (if such a concept may exist).

Pam, the evil PM, is a Project Manager at a big translation agency. Her hobbies include torturing freelance translators just for fun.

Bill, the direct client, is head of department in a multinational. He believes that a translator is “someone who speaks languages”.

Mina & Orange. Freelancers often have pets. Probably they would be surprised if they could read their pets’ thoughts…
