Peter Neilson <neilson -at- alltel -dot- net> pondered, " Does anyone out there actually perform polyglot tech writing? I just mess with French, German, Spanish and Italian for fun. Who's getting paid for it? How do you avoid confusing Spanish with Italian?"

I don't get paid to translate (anymore), but I often forget whether I'm thinking in Hebrew or Arabic. Especially which one I'm counting in. Throw in Spanish (European and Mexican) as well as bits of German, Russian, Yiddish, French, Latin, et cetera... I have no idea what language(s) I'm thinking in half the time!

At least I can keep English straight... usually.


PS--When distracted, I'm likely to make comments in any of the above languages (e.g., Ya Allah! Oy vey! etc.).
