A translator’s duty

Tonight, just as we speak, I’m doing something unusual and magical.

There’s this person who has never before been mentioned on the internet. For the first time, she is going to be mentioned in an article, published in 4 languages simultaneously. I am in charge of the Spanish translation.

I’ve researched the question thoroughly and she has never been mentioned in the internet at all. The transcription I give of her name has chances to become the accepted one.

Fascinating tidbits about being a translator. Being able to set a usage single handedly. (Obviously taking advantage of pre-existing usages).
