Thank you Aphaia...
Just a minor correction:

I'm actually NOT a translator. I do know a lot about how
translators work and think because as part of my research, I
will frequently do contextual interviews with translators
(i.e. sit beside them while they do their regular work, and
ask them lots of annoying questions about what they are doing
I will take the fact that I was confused for an actual
professional translator as a compliment and as an indication
that I did my homework well ;-).
