> actually perform polyglot tech writing?
Most of my tech writing is English, but I have to deal with a lot of German
and French at the Dutch company where I work in my day job.
Where I live in the Netherlands is only about 4 miles from the German
border and about 10 miles from the Belgian border.
My night job (with 6 kids you have to make the ends meet somehow), I
translate German, Dutch (Belgian and Netherlands variations), French
(Belgian and French variations), and Russian (my second wife is Russian)
into English (UK, international or US variations). I don't get confused about
what language I am working in, but I tend to forget what languages other
people are working with (the blank stare from an engineer will usually give
me a clue!).
