OK …………

My literal translation:


Manager: Hey, stick this advertisement for recruitment on.

Employee:  Looking for a number of staff. Mortgage slaves preferred.

                      Boss, why mortgage slaves preferred?

Manager:  Because they will take their job more seriously, even when you exploit, oppress, blackmail, they will work hard irrespective.


Ironed out a bit:

Manager:  Hey, put up this recruitment advertisement.

Employee:  Looking for a number of staff. Mortgage slaves preferred.

                      Boss, why are mortgage slaves preferred?

Manager:    Because they will take their job more seriously, even when you exploit, oppress, and blackmail them. They will work hard irrespective.

OK .......

My take on this is:

If you do not do the punctuation correctly then you will score badly.

You must have capital letters at the beginning of a sentence and spaces between clauses and rubric's ....   (Employee:But Boss .........) This lack of a gap is very poor writing and very lazy .......     

Personally I cannot allow 'house-slave' as this implies something different to the required meaning and could maybe even mean a person who is a slave IN a house .........

The correct term is Mortgage Slave: Someone who is a slave to a mortgage ........

I am looking for the correct ideas and the least mistakes  .......


Lindasun         Red marks 1       First
Ouchan 117    Red marks 1       Second


Sunnylin 3          "    "       3      Third
Greentree                         3     Third



notarat                             3   But last line is poor
Robert237                        3   But last lines are not pure enough in translation  

The rest 4 plus red marks

Well done the rest  .........      {:soso_e181:}

Please do not be lazy and ruin what could be a good job with lazy punctuation  ........

OK .......

My take on this is:

Common mistakes
NO GAP AFTER A FULL STOP before the next letter.
NOT USING A CAPITAL letter at the start of a sentance.
