A cool multilingualism moment from the show House MD

Posted on: October 8, 2020

Check out this fun clip from House:


The mother says “tell him I can’t breathe easily”
The daughter then mistranslates.

How do you verify that your translators or interpreters are actually saying what you say.

This is a great illustration of the typical problem.
A quick joke, imagine a conference interpreter saying “he just said a joke which is untranslatable, so please could you all laugh!”
