The Kea


Emmett Translation Agency


(Nestor notabilis)


A large species of parrot (family Strigopidae) found in forested and alpine regions of the Island of New Zealand. It is mostly olive-green and has a large narrow curved grey-brown upper beak. The Kea is one of the few alpine parrots in the world. Its omnivorous diet includes carrion but consists mainly of roots, leaves, berries, nectar and insects.

The Kea was once killed for bounty as it preyed on livestock, especially sheep. It only received full protection in 1986.

Kea are known for their intelligence and curiosity, both vital to their survival in a harsh mountain environment.

Kea can solve logical puzzles, such as pushing and pulling things in a certain order to get to food and will work together to achieve a certain objective.


 David Attenborough explains it better:



(Lingua traductata)

A species of the linguistic family (Lingua traductata), found on the global internet, although residing in Vigo, northwest Spain, known for his silver tongue, the species is an excellent communicator between different species. Mainly fair in colour but tomato red during the summer season, his silver tongue gives the game away to him being an excellent communicator between different species.

His omnivorous diet includes words in Spanish and Galician, which he then expresses with total fluency in British English. For this reason, he is considered as a professional translator. Emigrated from his home country, today and for many years now, he is based in Spain, occasionally flying off to the Falkland Islands, Edinburgh, London, Norway, Chile or Switzerland, among other destinations. The species feeds off others' words.

Since 1990, he is devoted to the spoken and written language as a professional. A highly sought after and even hunted species, Emmett Translator is known for his knowledge of three languages - English, Galician and Spanish - and for his curiosity, so that he can often be found immersed in sources of information such as dictionaries, encyclopedias, internet, etc. to improve communications. He uses Trados as a tool to improve productivity and quality. The species can solve puzzles and work as a team to achieve a certain objective.
