Isn’t it just our luck, translators? We land a fairly large project and just before the deadline our computer will need an update installation to keep running smoothly. And guess what… the updates will keep being installed for ages, but don’t you dare to turn your computer off or you will have to start the process all again. So, yes, it is a dead end.

Keep the smile all the same! Being a freelance translator is a fun adventure.

“In computing, a keyboard shortcut is a sequence or combination of keystrokes on a computer keyboard which invokes commands in software. Some keyboard shortcuts require the user to press a single key or a sequence of keys one after the other. Other keyboard shortcuts require pressing and holding several keys simultaneously.” Wikipedia
