This is my first thread so i hope it goes well!
I am hoping to become a ES-EN trainee translator in the next few weeks, I just need to pass the selection process first! The company i have applied for has sent me a translation in order to evaluate my skills. The text is straightforward, it is a short text about parenting skills and talks about the need for independence, impatience, and emotions of an 8 year old child.
In this case I would like to ask for advice on how to refer to the child, do i refer to the child as "he", "she", "them" or should I include a mixture of them all? i read a text in which the child alternated from a "he" to a "she" with each new sentence! hence i am rather confused...!
