Some translators see themselves as mere transmitters of news, clerks who know languages, simple transcribers of messages with greater or lesser importance, and that's why some translators, when they compare themselves to other professionals (doctors, lawyers, writers, etc.), consider their work a lesser profession. This doesn't get verbalized very often, but as they say, "it's the thought that counts."
