Today, with the launch of the new iPod shuffle
, the last Apple hardware device where I was directly involved in the translation (i.e. the old shuffle, where I translated and DTP:d the Swedish manual and parts of the packaging) has been retired. Of course my translations (like those by jophan
, some of which I based mine on) will be recycled, paraphrased and reused for as long as Apple keep localising their stuff. I suppose it counts as immortality, after a fashion.EDIT:
Nice thoughts to my old co-workers, who must have had (and probably are still having) a hellish day today. When I talked to thette
this morning, she said it is quite obvious that I am happy to be out of there, even a year and a half after I quit...
