Services from Generalitat Valenciana that could be process by Internet

The Valencian regional administration is known internationally for the contempt for the basic rights of citizens it has shown in the land-grab racket it runs in tandem with property developers. Contempt on a smaller scale is to be found in its internet portal, the few English texts on which make one wonder whether their translator was literate in any language. Darlings, “news” is not the same as “novelties”, and “daily official” leads one to expect nude photos of a planning inspector.

Föcked Translation (414): I posted to a light-hearted blog called Fucked Translation over on Blogger from 2007 to 2016, when I was often in Barcelona. Its original subtitle was "What happens when Spanish institutions and businesses give translation contracts to relatives or to some guy in a bar who once went to London and only charges 0.05€/word." I never actually did much Spanish-English translation (most of my work is from Dutch, French and German) but I was intrigued and amused by the hubristic Spanish belief, then common, that nepotism and quality went hand in hand, and by the nemeses that inevitably followed.

Generalitat Valenciana (2): The Generalitat Valenciana is the generic name covering the different self-government institutions under which the Spanish autonomous community of Valencia is politically organized.
