I swear to God, prior to this conversation, I assumed that my client (like me!) was a native Italian.
Client: I want this bit of the copy in Italian.
Me: I – okay, but can I ask why?
Client: I like how it looks.
Me: Okay, but this is intended for an English-speaking audience, right? Won’t they –
Client: Listen, it’s simple. Just put these sections in Italian and we’re done.
A strange request, but I do as he asks.
Client: What’s this?
Me: It’s – I put those parts in Italian, like you asked.
Client: Nah, I didn’t want any of this Spanish crap. I wanted it in Italian.
Me: What do you mean by “Italian?”
Client: You know, slanted-like.
Me: You wanted it in Italics?
Client: I don’t know what that is, but slant it up a notch or we’ll have a problem.
