    as such

    Hi,
    The expression "as such" has always been confusing to me. Can anyone explain what's the meaning of it?
    Thanks in advance.

    The conditions which are present or inherent. The day is very hot and as such we should not work outside in the afternoon (Since the day is hot we should not work outside in the afternoon). Truck drivers are professionals and they should be treated as such (they should be treated as professionals). A judge is limited by law as to the fine he can give and as such he has little control over the amount of the fine (the fines are inherent in the law).

    Do you mean that it has two meanings :
    1- Accordingly or therefore.
    2- In this way.

    Correct?
