I was proper amused at this article on the advert for geordie translators.  As a geordie myself I have to say that I have never had problems with anyone understanding my northern accent until I spent a year working in Cumbria and it was very difficult at times being understood as well as understanding some of the thicker west coast dialects.  But is a need for translators not taking things a bit too far?  Having said that if it pays well you can count me in.
