Napsala jsem: "Is it difficult to be a judge?" - to neuznalo a jako správná odpověď se ukázala tato: Is it difficult to be a justice? Proč je v tomto případě JUSTICE?
Justice je - kromě jiného - i soudce.
Yes, but why is 'judge' not allowed in that version?
it is now
I would think that the more proper English translation would be, "Is it hard to be a woman judge?" If we were asking about judges in general "soudcem" would have been used. Yes? No? Maybe?
Perhaps it could be accepted as a side translation, although I think female is better, but note that we have no reports from people requesting this translation. Not even from you.
Note that this is a translation from Czech to English. Not the other way.
I'm happy to know that sex discrimination is not an issue in Czechia!
does this mean - is it hard being a judge -ie that kind of work or is it closer to - is it hard to become a judge?
It's the former. We would say "stát se soudkyní" for "to become a judge".
