Is that a script from a Middle Eastern client? It sure looks similar to ones I’ve been given, often with the caveat, “don’t change a word... they’re very proud of their English”.

Just this (Wednesday) morning I received a job whose script began thusly (company and product names and analyses sizes changed; capitalizations, punctuation and line breaks were not):

Quote:
Welcome to Acme fruit bat detectors designed. For analyses ranging from teeny-tiny

To somewhat bigger scale.


When I politely said to my client, an English-speaking European VO, that the script appeared to have been translated and wasn't quite right, the response was that "The text is fine. But here it is the way you like it." The new version was:

Quote:
Welcome to Acme fruit bat detectors: designed for analyses ranging from ____ to ____ scale.


Sometimes my attempts at sanding rocket thrusters feels like. More feeding chimps at noon.
