      Ja s tim naprosto souhlasim. Platy prekladatelu v CR je treba posuzovat v kontextu zivotnich nakladu v CR, prumerneho platu v CR, vydelku srovnatelnych intelektualnich profesi v CR apod. Ono je to totez jako u lekaru, ti se ovsem muzou zvednout a jit zkusit stesti k zapadnim sousedum (protoze nase ekonomika jim nikdy zapadni platy nabidnout nemuze), kdezto u nas prekladatelu "ustoupit neni kam, za nami Moskva" (to byl jeden sovetsky roman ...).
