Yeah! Another cartoon in the new series about parts of speech frequently used by translators or associated with them. Now, it’s the turn of “on”. In the case of translators, this preposition always finds its way to collocate in an almost fixed phrase for translators. Here’s an example:
Translator’s fried: Hey you! Long time no see. Let’s catch up!
Translator: I’d love to, but I can’t. I’m on a tight deadline, sorry.
Take five minutes to relax and have some fun.
