"I work as a freelance translator. If I'm posting, I'm not working. Unfortunately, the urge to post overcomes me mostly when I should be working." advocatus diaboli

You get that much work translating German to English or vice-versa? I thought just about everyone in Europe can speak and read/write English? My sister that lived in Sweden for 7 years told me that everyone there could speak English even though they didn't like to. She said they prefer speaking Swedish.

My mom, aunts, and uncles were all bilingual in English and German. My grandfather spoke German, Polish, and English. I wish my mom had taught us German but back then there was a lot of anti-German sentiment and my parents wanted us kids to be 100% American.
