Recently, I found a citation in a signature of someone on codeproject:
As programmers go, I'm fairly social. Which still means I'm a borderline sociopath by normal standards.
I would translate this into the following:
Für Programmiererverhältnisse bin ich recht sozial. Was noch immer bedeutet, dass ich ein Borderline-Soziopath bin unter normalen Standards/Gesichtspunkten.
Especially the first part (As programmers go) keeps me thinking. If I translate this more word-by-word, this results in "Wenn Programmierer gehen..." but I would never translate this German back into the cited English "As programmers go". So probably I'm totally wrong. What is the translation of this citation in German?
