“Translation is not a matter of words only: It is a matter of making intelligible a whole culture” – Anthony Burgess
I’ve been privileged in my career to have had some incredible experiences and meet many wonderful and inspiring people. I’ve travelled around the world to conferences, EWCs and more.
I promised some exciting new content earlier this week after my post about video marketing, and I am delighted to share with you a new video that shows a snapshot of my career highlights and my journey as an interpreter with some behind-the-scenes looks of me in action!
I truly love my job and this industry, but interpreting is more than just about the language – knowledge, contextualization, preparation, rapid analysis, subtly of expression, savoir-faire, diplomacy, soft skills, human relations and teamwork come into play. And of course, a smile!
I put my heart into every assignment. In return, I get from every experience the awareness of making intelligible the different cultures I embrace.
So, my wish to all of you today is to find the same motivation in what you do. Sit back, brew a fresh coffee and enjoy!
