Hmm. Interesting that I should try to translate (mej) as "flee", but
failed to look up "flee" in the dictionary.  Of course, I meant...

lujlaw'taHDI' jeghbe' 'ej Haw'be'

I must've thought (jang) was also a noun for a moment.  Your suggestion
is not quite what I was going for.  I wanted something more along the
lines of, "though she isn't certain of her translations and she fears
that they may be wrong, she is none-the-less willing to allow everyone
to see her actions, for better or worse."  How about...
