An example: very few translators are as confident when translating from their fourth language as from their first. It is harder to take the decision to depart from a literal (and stilted) rendition of the original for fear of having not understood, or of having misunderstood, the meaning. However, while it is not helpful to have false confidence in one’s ability, nor it is useful to be cripple in a task which one is going to have to carry out anyway! At such moments it can be useful to ‘map across’ a feeling of confidence from your experience with tour first or second language, which can help you to make bolder decisions. It is still possible to retain a critical attitude ensuring you make no silly mistakes, and you are likely to want a colleague more competent in that language to check your work at some stage.

False confidence, when you think you know enough and don’t question your understanding, is surely just as common. True confidence enables us to call ourselves into question continually and to forgive our errors. It enables us to take responsibility for our mistakes and “do it differently next time”.
