The Life of a Translator

Luisa is an amazingly patient person. She almost always has the ability to take what life throws at her and make the best of the situation. My wife is an amazing person with a lot of positive traits, but her patience is probably the best of all. She is extremely hard working and goal oriented. She doesn’t quit when things get hard, and just pushes through, she always says: “that when the going gets tough the tough get going.” She is not too talkative but she is able to talk and be friendly with strangers. 

Luisa is a professional translator. I can say many great things about her as a professional but one of the things that her clients like about her, is that she loves her profession and is excellent with languages. Throughout the years that we have spent together she has mentioned many times, that being a freelance translator is tough and is very much like being a taxi driver: "a customer call for a job to be carried out urgently, if you don't answer the phone or  you are busy then the customer will ask someone else." Also not knowing where your next pay check is coming from is one of the hardest challenges. On the upside, one of the best perks is the fact that the workday is pretty flexible. Most of the time she can organize her day in such a way that she just gets enough free time for all of the important things in life like having coffee with friends and getting to the gym before it gets really busy in the evening. with a smile on her face she says: "It takes a little organisation to manage all my tasks without missing any deadlines, translation work is often like waiting for a bus  lot’s of time waiting for one to arrive and then three turn up at the same time!" But more than once she works right through the night and weekends without breaks. Sometimes I despair seeing her work so many long hours nonstop, but her good mood and happy face makes me wonder if I choose the right profession.
