Translation is a devious and mysterious practice that involves changing words and phrases from other languages into American. Needless to say, this is not a well-respected line of work because anything worth reading is written in American. I mean, seriously, if these books have nothing to hide, why weren't they written in American in the first place?
Additionally, most things that need to be translated are books, which, being all fact and no heart, are humorlessly obsolete.
The only exception: Alpha Squad 7: Lady Nocturne: A Tek Janson Adventure.
