Let $E$ be a simple finite-dimensional representation of a semisimple Lie algebra with extremal weight $\nu$ and let $0 \neq e \in E_{\nu }$. Let $M(\tau )$ be the Verma module with highest weight $\tau$ and $0 \neq v_{\tau } \in M(\tau )_{\tau }$. We investigate the projection of $e \otimes v_{\tau } \in E \otimes M(\tau )$ on the central character $\chi (\tau +\nu )$. This is a rational function in $\tau$ and we calculate its poles and zeros. We then apply this result in order to compare translation functors.
