(from Carla Sott, facilitator and translator)
Any new project is an opportunity to cement your learner mindset and to make you grow, especially when you are given a document about something you know little about.
Then you put your learner hat on and immerse yourself in the act of researching subject-related manuals so you can get the feel of it first. Once you start translating, your quest for the right word transcends family and house chores. And you're happy.
You see, language is a code and translators are decoders.
