      Martine, zrovna jsem mela rozepsan mail s naprosto stejnou myslenkou. Nase
      profese je v tom naprosto jedinecna. Kdyz si vezmu svou vlastní zkusenost -
      nedavno jsem pocitala, ze pouhych 5 % sve práce prodavam ceskym klientum, a
      to jen z urcite slabosti a diky dlouholetym vztahum. Jako prekladatele se
      nemusime se nikam premistovat, a pokud bychom tu potrebu meli, pak bych to
      videla na nejaky romanticky domecek na plazi - jako nekolik mych znamych
      prekladatelu, kterym odrostly deti.
      Hezky sobotni podvecer
      Lenka

      odmenovani s ceskymi zivotnimi naklady...
