What Ruth says:  My life revolves around Acuity. I’ve been running it for nearly 20 years, brought up 5 kids over that time, moved country (there and back – and left some kids there too!), and it still won’t go away!  I suppose languages and effective communication are underlying passions for me.  Although I laugh at funny mistranslations, something still grates that it wasn’t properly done in the first place…  Maybe that’s why they call me ‘Mrs Pedantic’ in the office?
