  1. I am not sure about the compulsory… /robota/ and variants in Slavic languages translates to work or labor, likely physical, but also in other meanings we associated with “work” (function: /eta nie roboteiet/ ~= That does not work).

    I like the Labor translation more than the compulsory assumption, that is probably only a sub-meaning.

  2. Yes, you are quite correct.

    Naturally it has a number of meanings, depending on context, similar to the word “work” in English. There it means everything from a place you go to make money to a physical property measured in Joules. Obviously those are not the same thing, and the meaning changes with the context. In the context of the original play, the “robots” are creations whose sole purpose is to perform labor, and I’m pretty certain that is the sense to which the infographic refers.

    Of course, because it’s an infographic, it is necessarily brief.
