Strasbourg was unusually warm that day. No clouds could be spotted on the horizon and the carriage managed to reach the Imperial Palace right on time.

Manuel bid farewell to the coachman and approached one of the guards standing in front of the gate, showing him a letter.


I have an invitation from His High Born Lord Fedele Cristoforo Bastiano Ferrari. Would it be possible to inform him of my arrival?

Manuel observed the guard disappearing inside the palace bringing his message, waiting for his return.

As soon as Fedele was informed of the arrival of the candidate, he left the Scriptorium and went to the Entrance Hall and then to the office where Leunam was probably waiting for him.

And he was there indeed, so he approached him and said: "Welcome to Strasbourg! I am Fedele Cristoforo Bastiano Ferrari, the Head Translator of the Imperial Scriptorium. I hope you had a pleasant journey. Is this your first time in Strasbourg?"

He then guided him through a couple of corridors to a little cozier room, with a fire on in a corner and something to drink. "Would you tell me something more about you?"

The Head Translator greeted him as they headed inside the palace. The lobby and the corridors they went through were carefully decorated with paintings, sculptures, and other artefacts coming from all over the Empire. It was a splendid mixture of different kinds of art, but they harmoniously complemented each other.

I have been coming here to Strasbourg regularly, but this is the first time I have visited the Imperial Palace. As a former member of the Imperial Market, I used to work a couple of miles from here.

Manuel and the Head Translator entered inside one of the rooms on the ground floor. It wasn't as impressive as the hallway outside, but it suited this kind of private meetings very well. He received a warm cup of tea from Fedele.

Thank you for having me. Let me introduce myself once again: I am Manuel degli Altieri, proud citizen of the Republic of Florence, and I am here interviewing for the position of Imperial translator.

He stopped to sip some tea. It had a fruited yet delicate aroma.

As I mentioned earlier, I served as the Trade Minister of Florence for the past four months. During that time, I had the pleasure to meet ladies and gentlemen from many different countries. Naturally, many of them did not speak Italian. I had a good time mediating their needs and writing contracts and documents in English, so this is part of the reason why I am here today.

Furthermore, as the harbourmaster of one of the liveliest ports of the Tyrrhenian Sea, I am often the first person to welcome merchants and other people coming from the southern coasts of France and Spain, and I am more than happy to help them with their needs.


Was he speaking too much? Manuel didn't want to steal too much of Fedele's time.

I can speak and write fluently in English and Italian. I also have some vague knowledge of French and Spanish, but I would not be comfortable translating documents in these two languages; they are useful to find the meaning of ambiguous sentences, though.

I believe to have all the requirements to become an Imperial translator for the Italian linguistic area. Also, I have been helping the local authorities to interpret records and papers coming from the outside
*.

This is all. Thank you for your time. Do you have any questions?


Waiting for the reply of his interlocutor, Manuel sat back in his chair and drank the remaining of his tea.



* OOC: I have been actively helping to translate the game into Italian.

"Oh, I see" -said Fedele- "You indeed have a lot of chores to complete"

He smiled, offering him some tea while letting him speak: "Yes, English and Italian are enough and you will be only asked to translate from/to those two languages. But I agree with you, other languages can truly help sometimes in understanding some hidden meanings and other little bits"

And then added: "I indeed have a question: I understand you have been quite busy lately and maybe you still are; do you think you have enough time for the Scriptorium? It may not seem the case, but presence is essential within it and translators are required to work on a varying number of texts of all sorts on a daily basis. Can you handle it?

Manuel quietly listened to what Fedele had to say.

I can understand your concern, but there is nothing to worry about. My mandate as Trade Minister ended last week. I now have plenty of spare time in my hands. My other occupations do not take too much time, so I can work for the Scriptorium on a daily basis.

Fedele nodded nad took a sip of the hot beverage.

He then handed Leunam a document and said: "This is the Charta of the Imperial Scriptorium. Please, read it carefully and ask me anything you need or want to know and really tell me if there's anything coming up to your mind!"

Charta of the Imperial Scriptorium:

Manuel took the document and started reading it. It was clear and concise; there wasn't anything he didn't expect. He only asked a single question:

May I know how the workload is distributed? Is it the head translator who assigns jobs to the translators, or the other way around?

Either way, I have read and agree with the conditions established by the Charta. Whenever you prefer, I am ready to join the Imperial Scriptorium.

Thank you for the time dedicated to this interview.


He concluded, returning the scroll to Fedele.

Fedele listened and answered to him: "Well, translators are free to work on the announcements they want. Longer announcements may be split among a linguistic team, but that's totally up to them. The main thing that is required is to make those translations in the fastest possible way. And correctly, of course. Does this answer your doubts?"

And then said: "But in the meantime, would you mind doing a little exercise? Could you translate this old announcement into Italian, please?"

Received the scroll from Fedele, Manuel took a feather, an inkwell, and started writing.

After a short while, he gave back the piece of paper to be reviewed.


What do you think of this?

"It seems fine to me, thank you" -said Fedele looking at the translation- "So, as you have read on the Charta, it's up to the Imperial Spokesperson to choose new translators"

He stood up: "If you excuse me, I'd like to speak to her. I'll come back as soon as a decision is taken"

Fedele came back and said to the candidate: "Well, well, well... I spoke with the Imperial Spokesperson and she agreed to hire you as an Imperial translator! You are now a member of the Imperial Scriptorium! Please, always keep in mind the Charta that I showed you! If there's something you do not know, please always, always, always ask for help. Remember that teamwork is essential! In fact, there may even be a translation awaiting for you, but you'll see once you enter the Scriptorium"

He then stood up again and handed him the keys.

Manuel quietly listened to the response.

Thank you for giving me this opportunity. I will head straight to the Scriptorium. If I need it, I will ask my colleagues for help.
