Episode Description:
Translation Strategist, Liane R. Grant, joins us on this episode of the SideHustle Lounge to share her framework for success in bilingual transcription. Hear how she earns 4X's more in her side hustle than she did with full time employment. Is this for you? Liane has the answer.

Episode Highlights:
24:47   You take each sentence and you put it into the other language. You take the freedom that you need to move the words around so that they sound natural in the other language. You want to make sure all the information is still there. You haven't changed anything, you haven't added anything, you haven't omitted anything, but you definitely have to move the words around.

28:58   The translation has to be faithful to the original document. It has to match. It has to have the same content. As translators we, we don't have the freedom to introduce new information or change information.

29:60   I teach my students to focus on fidelity, first of all, then readability and then conformity. So in each of those areas, I teach them three best practices that will help them achieve that result.
