In this episode, Eve and Corinne interview German to English translator Katie Schober about her life on the road as a digital nomad. Katie–a longtime Speaking of Translation listener, who specializes in history and genealogy translations–has spent six months traveling the US with her husband while continuing to work full time, and they’re about to embark on the European leg of their journey. Katie talks about planning this kind of trip, working full-time while on the road, the pluses and minuses of the digital nomad life, and advice for others who might want to try it!
