The answer to the thoughts of the day last week; what’s the biggest taboo for a translator? I’ve gotten a lot of interesting answers and the taboo varies from person to person.
But personally, to me, I think the biggest taboo for a translator has to be indulging in reading a novel or manga. Whenever I picked up a new series to read and get attached to it, I’d forgo everything else and indulge myself in reading throughout the days and weeks until I finally finish all the chapters. That includes my full-time work, translating, and even sleep.
When I picked up a new novel to read, I always find myself reading EVERYWHERE, literally everywhere, when I’m in the car, at work, at home, at a restaurant, at a party, in a meeting, and even on the bed. It be like I’m totally possessed by something that propels me to read until the end as soon as possible.
