"Nun, unser erster Gast ist ein Autor und ein Unternehmer."

Translation:Now, our first guest is an author and an entrepreneur.

I wrote "Well" instead of "Now", and even when the sentence makes sense, it is wrong. When is it advised to translate "nun" for one or the other meaning?


In this case, it should be 'well', since 'nun' is a filling word here. When 'nun' actually refers to time, it should be 'now'.
