Staying Connected to the Language


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 very easy 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 stays connected to the language.
  • Her favorite words.
  • What she looks for in a CAT tool, among other things.
