Translators Are a Waste of Space, Aren’t We?

Sometimes I feel overwhelmed by the work I do. Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do and truly grateful for every life decision I’ve made. But no matter how hard you try, there always be people who underappreciate your job and the efforts you put in. They can make you feel miserable. They can make you feel unimportant. Easily replaceable. But thanks to Norwegian Association of Literary Translators I now have my personal confidence booster. I’m not a waste of space and neither are you, my dear colleagues. Watch this powerful video.

This video has been written and performed by Erik Skuggevik for The Norwegian Association of Literary Translators. Produced by Iver Grimstad.
