    The Human Side of Translators w/ Sandy Jones

    The Human Side of Translators w/ Sandy Jones

    What do you do when you encounter a word that you need translated? Odds are, you open the Google Translate app on your phone and get your answer, right? It's quick, east, and will get the job done. 
    But no matter how good machine translation gets, there's one thing it lacks. One thing that it will never have. Humanity. 
    On a recent episode of the Move the World with Words podcast, we sat down with Sandy Jones to talk about: the life of a patent translator, how she keeps herself educated about patent law, and the one thing she wishes people knew about translators.

    Interpreters: The Unsung Heroes w/ Judy Jenner

    When was the last time you thought about an interpreter?
    Odds are, unless you've been arrested in a foreign country and needed a good court interpreter, it's probably been a minute. 
    Right?
    But Judy Jenner is out to change that. 
    She was a guest on a recent episode of the Move the World with Words Podcast, and had a lot to say about: the role of the interpreter in our current culture, the times in her life when she's had to own up to her failures, and how she decided in Middle School that she wanted to own a cross-cultural consulting firm.

    The Life of a Professional Interpreter w/ Pency Tsai

    When was the last time you cursed in front of a judge?
    If you're Pency Tsai, and your job is to be a full-time language interpreter, it probably happened more recently than one might think. 
    Pency was a guest on the Move the World with Words podcast recently, and talked to our team all about, among other things: life as a full-time interpreter, why she leaves in all the swear words- no matter who she's talking to, how she rests and recharges, and why she thinks competition in the industry is overblown and damaging to the industry as a whole.

    Staying Connected to the Language w/ Emily Safrin

    Staying Connected to the Language w/ Emily Safrin

    Portland, Oregon is a predominantly English-speaking city. In fact, most of the Pacific Northwest is anchored pretty solidly in English. So how does a freelance Spanish-to-English translator stay connected to the language? In a part of the country where it would be so very east to get by with English, how do you stay sharp?
    Emily Safrin was a guest on the Move the World with Words podcast recently and talked all about: why she prefers her home office, how she stay connected to the language, her favorite words, and what she looks for in a CAT tool, among other things.

    How Two Translators Are Taking Brands’ Messages to Latin America w/ Gabriela Ortiz and Ariana Loker

    How Two Translators Are Taking Brands’ Messages to Latin America w/ Gabriela Ortiz and Ariana Loker

    We know very little about the farmer who grows our coffee beans. We're probably not entirely sure how our clothes are knit together. We may not know the engineer who designed our smartphones. But here at Smartling, we're on a mission to uncover the lives of at least one contributor to global commerce- translators. 
    We're elevating not just the work, but the everyday lives of translators around the globe. We want to know: what are their hobbies? What are their favorite restaurants, their favorite movies? What are their passions?
    So, on this first episode of the Move the World with Words podcast, we caught up with two translators who work in Buenos Aires- Gabriela Ortiz and Ariana Loker. 
    What we talked about: speaking the buyer's language, translating the intended message of the seller, dialects, passion in words, and brand.

    Why You Should Listen to Move the World with Words

    If commerce is driven by words, global commerce is fueled by translation. 
    But have you ever met a translator? They have interesting and challenging roles to play in our global economy. 
    When you spend your life and career helping other people tell their stories, you often don't get the chance to tell your own. To let the world know that you've got things to say as well. 
    That's where the Move the World with Words podcast comes in. 
    In addition to writing and releasing a book, we talked with hundreds of translators from all around the world, and picked 35 to sit down and interview. We went deep with them learning: what got them into the translation industry? What do they wish people knew about translators? What are their favorite words? Movies? Books? What are the daily pitfalls and challenges that they face?
