Katie Price to run language services for Barcelona Council?

The Melonfight Strumpdom of Jordan – more dark-veiled Cotytto in the Daily Mirror photo – has, presumably according to her media pimp, made an insignificant error in a text to some other debauched nonentity, thus distracting the organ of the socialist revival from a more serious task at hand. FT has enquired circumspectly of the Ayuntamiento de Barcelona whether, given their record, they’d be prepared to let her run their translation service, and the answer is a cautious “yes”. Now there’s a story.

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.

  1. Oh don't do that, they just want to be mentioned in whatever way.

    I'm telling that to myself even more often, and to less avail.

    Apart from that, thanks for the laughs!

  2. Trev, I don't want to appear thicker than usual but is your first link (to Milton) correct? I was expecting a Daily Mirror foto of the be-breasted strumpet.
