FML, the day I dreaded has come!
We got a client that is from our country.. meaning they speak what I speak, but I do not type what they read..
I hate writing emails in my native language and with proper grammar.. I haven't done that since I finished with high school and they're full of typos.. Even after spellcheck and grammar check and everything it's faaaaar worse than my English.. fuzck!

    Yep, same thing here. Just feels weird writing official email in native language.

    Holy shit, what's going on around you? My native language is the only one I am able to perfectly speak and write. My English, though not bad, is much worse compared to my mother tongue.

    We do all our written correspondence in English, even with our customers down the hall.

    I fear I'll unlearn my native language some day, I sometimes already have to google translations English-German 😅

    @gathurian sometimes when I talk only the english words come to my mind 😅

    @Kage Hhaha yeah um... No... Would have to redo it everytime because I lack native words even for everyday items... It's like my brain detects my location and turns off native support when I'm at work.. o.O

    for me it's the opposite, I can write in my native language more professionally and more expressive than the average of people. but in the most of the cases I use English

    Similar situation here, too. Tons of communication in my native language lately. It's gotten so bad that I had to speak up about it that it interfered with my concentration for coding
