Decoding the philosophical subtext in financial translation segments

Sometimes, at work, I find meaning in the strangest places. Then again, maybe I put it there myself. In translation, especially when you use software that chops up text into bite-size nuggets in disorder, “segments” are interesting because they are isolated, taken out of context and, honestly, could mean anything. If you play around with them long enough, you begin to see the numerous paths they can take you.

I should probably be working harder.
