    Translating in a Black Box w/ Eugenia Tietz-Sojolskaya

    Translating in a Black Box w/ Eugenia Tietz-Sojolskaya

    What do you do when you have to translate with no context? 
    When you have a job to do, but perhaps you’re working with an agency, and you don’t know how your translation is going to be used. 
    Or where it’s going to be used. 
    Or who is going to be accessing it. 
    Unfortunately, it’s part of the job, but that doesn’t mean that it ever gets easier. 
    “As a translator, you’re not creating content. You’re working with what you have. The good and the not so good,” said Eugenia Tietz-Sojolskaya. On this episode of Move the World with Words, Eugenia talks all about: 
    -Her journey into the world of translation
    -Translating without context, and why it can be so difficult
    -How she still gets that “puzzle piece” feeling when she finds the perfect sentence
    -What Move the World with Words means to her.

    Interpreting for the Vulnerable w/ Janna Davis

    Interpreting for the Vulnerable w/ Janna Davis

    The doctor’s office is a vulnerable place. 
    It’s like going to the car mechanic. 
    Nobody goes to the doctor because they enjoy going to the doctor. Typically, they go because something is wrong. 
    Now imagine you’ve got to go to the doctor and you don’t speak the language. 
    You’re scared, vulnerable, and something is wrong, but you can’t understand what the technician is saying or communicate what you’re feeling. 
    That’s where someone like Janna Davis comes in. She was a guest on the podcast recently and talked with us all about: 
    -Her time living in Spain, and how the language just “clicked” for her
    -Why she’s devoted her career to medical translation
    -What Move the World with Words means to her
