does those two "translate" mean "convey?" In Irving Marina Oswald and Ruth Paine had heard it over the Zenith set Lee had been watching the evening before. Ruth translated for her friend and lit a candle. Is that a way of praying?" Marina inquired. "Yes, it is, just my own way," Ruth replied. Marina went into the yard to hang some clothes. The newscaster reported that the shots had come from the Texas School Book Depository, and Ruth went out to translate this, too. Marina said nothing, but she furtively checked the blanket roll in the garage. Seeing it there, not know¬ing it was empty, she whispered to herself, "Thank God." Ruth did not connect Lee with the shots, though she thought it gripping to know someone who was downtown and could give a firsthand account of what had happened.

translate surely just means '翻译.' or interpret - why are you thinking of translate as convey?
