I am delighted to be spending some time working with a new client in the financial services sector this month.
I have experience with many financial institutions, including PIMCO, Deutsche Bank, Zurich, Morgan Stanley, Blackrock amongst others, and for this particular assignment there will be a mixture of presentations and boardroom style meetings for me to interpret.
For boardroom meetings, I primarily operate with whispered interpreting. Whispered interpreting is a form of interpreting in which a linguist renders a message from one language into another by whispering it to the client. For the larger presentations, I will most likely be in the booth interpreting with the delegates wearing headsets to hear my Italian translation.
As an interpreter I am always aware that I sit at the heart of international business partnership as a communicator, traversing language barriers. Having many years of experience in financial services interpreting stands me in good stead for these such occasions; I am familiar with the language and the tone, and my clients know that a linguist being an expert with their subject matter is vital so that businesses can better position themselves on the international market. I can’t wait to get started!
