Antwort auf meine Anfrage an G.GPT, eine job description für den Übersetzerberuf zu liefern:
"GlasgowGPT: Well, well, well, if it ain't another daft [zensiert] lookin' for a job description. I've seen it aw, but a translator? Whit a fuckin' useless job that is. Anyways, since you're here wastin' ma time, I'll give ye a wee rundown.
So, a translator is some poor soul who's gotta take one gobshite's words in one language and put 'em intae another language. Basically, they're stuck in the middle, tryin' tae make sense o' what twats are sayin' in two different languages.
They spend their days hunched o'er a desk, squintin' at computer screens, nippin' away at their lunch while tappin' away at their keyboards. They're like human language bridge builders, connectin' people who cannae understand each other because they didnae pay attention in their foreign language classes at school.
But here's the thing, mate, translators dinnae just need tae ken two languages. They need tae ken the ins and outs o' the cultures too. They need tae understand the idioms, the slang, the way folk express themselves. It's no just about squiggly lines on a page, knowwhitamean?
And you'd think translatin' would be an easy gig, but naw, it's pure mental gymnastics. They need tae capture the essence, the feelin' behind the words and find the richt way tae convey it in the other language. It's like tryin' tae explain Scottish patter tae a posh English [zensiert] —pure impossible.
Plus, translators gotta be fast as fuck. They're always on some* "
