Abstract: The current COVID-19 outbreak has forced the majority of employees to work from home, in what for many is an unfamiliar setting for activities normally performed elsewhere – in office spaces and/or the classroom, for example. This raises the question of how best to organise both our physical environment and our daily work routines so that we can work productively and effectively while maintaining our physical and mental well-being. A basic understanding of ergonomics can help, as shown by the results and insights from the ErgoTrans project run at ZHAW's IUED Institute of Translation and Interpreting.
