Yes Sep 9, 2018

In hot weather, shorts or a towel will stop my nether regions sticking to the chair. But I'll usually put more clothes on if I have visitors.

Flexible Sep 9, 2018

Good morning,
I am flexible and it depends on whether I’ll be working at home when I wear whatever I feel like but when I have to go outside to work as an interpreter at that time it is formal and depends on the place and conditions of work as well as the requirements of the client. I research a lot before dressing up for the work that has to be done outside.

Good morning,
I am flexible and it depends on whether I’ll be working at home when I wear whatever I feel like but when I have to go outside to work as an interpreter at that time it is formal and depends on the place and conditions of work as well as the requirements of the client. I research a lot before dressing up for the work that has to be done outside.
I did suffer a lot twice but not anymore. During the first job it was supposed to be simultaneous interpretation job but when I was in the museum I had the shocking discovery that I’ll be doing consecutive interpretation and I had to sit on stage with the musicians. I took a stole scarf from one of the musicians. I was really happy.
Second time I was working for EASO project in the island city of Samos as Cultural mediator for (Punjabi, Urdu and English) and it was basically the work of a Consecutive Interpreter who knew the aforementioned languages as well as the culture. I was shocked because no one explained the code and there was man from Pakistan who didn’t have the right to work because he worked for the Government of Pakistan and prepared the Pakistani National Identity Cards even though it was and still is a rule that the Asylum Seekers shouldn’t have any contact with their country of origin. He used to overhear my conversation with my friend and made fun of me as well as harassed me.
And once when we were the room that was for the Cultural Mediators and other colleagues has left then he took off his clothes. I rushed out scared and an Officer of the Greek Police was really kind and understood the situation after that he really helped me out.
So such people are a danger for us but no one seems to care. I refused the next job that they offered even though it was really well paid.
It’s time to learn all the time.

Yes (sort of...) Sep 9, 2018

It depends mainly on what I have to do that particular day: do I have any outdoor business on my agenda? Usually, my "dress code" is staying in my pyjamas until around 10 each morning (unless I have an urgent job to get done…), and then I change to comfortable and practical clothes: in summer, jeans and T-shirt, in winter: an old cashmere sweater and elastic waist pants.

No Sep 9, 2018

No and that is the great thing about being a freelancer as I can dress how I like when I want and no one can say anything about it. I used to work in a profession where our regulatory body stipulated a dress code that was very much a sartorial straight jacket that ran along the lines of "thou shalt not wear a double breasted suit" and "are only permitted to wear certain approved shades of colour of tie".

To make matters worse not adhering to the draconian dress code was frowned upon as "bringing the profession into disrepute" enforced strictly with sanctions of the same ilk as applied to those individuals who chose to steal their clients' money and do other nefarious things. I am glad I no longer have to put up with that sort of idiotic nonsense and value my freedom.

I had enough of that kind of "tuck your shirt in/where's your tie/put your cap on" nonsense at school and vowed never to put up with it again after I left. I think I'm long enough in the tooth now to know how to dress appropriately for different situations.

Not now Sep 9, 2018

No, because at the moment I'm working at home, so no one sees me or can tell me what I have to wear.
Of course, if I have a meeting on Skype (about work), I'm not going to wear a vest or a bikini, rather a blouse.

I'm sure he's seen worse.

That said, I just thought yesterday that my spending on clothes has probably been a two-digit number of Euros this year, and I have all I need (and much more - had to move my wardrobe the other week to access the wall behind it, and realized that I own several times my own weight in clothes. Why?)

*Edit: People in this house order everything online, from a collector's subscription to football jerseys to an entire garden pavillion. And I (sometimes) translate online-retail websites. Maybe I'm just sneakily generating job opportunities for myself?

My dress code is: do not wear your pajama all day long.
As to what to wear it depends on what I have to do during the day.

Translating no/interpreting yes Sep 9, 2018

When I translate at home I usually wear the first thing I find clean in my wardrobe, but when I have to interpret I usually wear a suit (although it depends on the kind of event it is).

Flexible dress code Sep 9, 2018

My dress code is simply always to wear clothes when translating and never to translate in nightie, pyjamas or dressing gown. This is also associated with my rule to never translate in the bedroom. That way, translation is clearly labelled as an activity not connected with sleep. I think it's important never to translate when either asleep or falling asleep. It's also better not to translate during meals.

It's also better not to translate during meals.

When I was an employee, I dressed according to what I was doing that day, the weather and how I felt when I got up in the morning. If I was going to be visiting a construction site and climbing up scaffolding, obviously, it was suitable to wear jeans, hardhat and steel toe capped boots. It always surprised me that some men would go up scaffolding wearing a suit. Many years ago I visited the London office of a woman barrister, a senior partner, on a very hot summer day. She and I were wearing light and comfortable summer dresses. I remarked to her about how silly it seemed for the men in her office to be suffering in suits and ties. She grinned at me and said, with an expression of satisfied revenge on her face and in her voice: "We really must maintain standards!"

Please! Sep 9, 2018

Among the things that I definitely got rid of when I left my last in-house job and became a freelancer, this is one of them. This is something I will NOT waste time thinking about. I wear whatever I was wearing 15 minutes before I started working, which could be jeans an T-shirt if I'm coming back from the supermarket, or a pair of shorts with an underwear, if I'm coming straight from bed.

In one of my latest in-house jobs, I worked in a construction site in the north of Brazil. With an average temperature of 40ºC, I had to wear jeans, long-sleeve thick shirts (company uniform), boots, hardhat, gloves, eyglasses and ear protection. I will never, ever go through this type of torture again.

I need to feel comfortable and easy respiring, so I only wear cotton, linen or hemp, not too tight cut and not too clumsy.

Only that I have to take the dog out Sep 10, 2018

If it weren't for my dog, Heaven knows what I'd wear!

My dog needs to go out first thing in the morning, so I quickly dress in something that I won't get arrested for -- a muumuu or pyjama shorts and a T-shirt. I'm wearing the latter right now, after working for 8 hours. It's still quite hot in San Diego. If it gets chilly in the evening, I add a sweater or cardigan. (I've discovered that if one body part is warm, the others follow suit (pun intended).) It's too soon to be thinking

I dress up if I have to go somewhere, but when I get back I usually revert to my uniform.
