Less than 40% Sep 29, 2020

So far, I’ve translated 25 documents relating to Covid-19, the last one today (a video message). I must say that most of these documents refer more to the ongoing economic crisis caused by Covid-19 than to the pandemic itself.

Hardly any Sep 29, 2020

Maybe a couple of documents a month, but never more than a handful.

Quite a bit Sep 29, 2020

Giving a percentage estimate isn't the easiest, but back when the reality of the disease really started hitting home, it seemed absolutely everyone was putting out statements. During the first couple of months, I had a lot of work coming my way from direct clients for those, but things eventually subsided considerably and I don't think I've had any COVID stuff to translate in the last couple of months.

Less than 10% Sep 29, 2020

There should be an option "Less than 10%" or "20%". While many of my end clients are posting Covid related content regularly (telling their customers about special responses to the crisis and so on), the volume of standard, non Covid related content has not changed much and is still more than 90% of my work.

I can't give a percentage.

At the start of the quarantine I had a couple of large jobs related to the medical aspect of the pandemic.

Recently I've been translating marketing material for one of the biggest online learning companies in Latin America. Good luck to them.

Surely, Tom, you mean “How much work HAVE YOU TRANSLATED...”?
