Interpreting is
life-long learning

„What I love about working as a conference interpreter? Being able to see the latest technological developments before the general public, and observe the most innovative tinkerers and inventors at their work. Constantly dealing with new subject areas that you would never have thought were so interesting, and the fact that things never become routine, and life-long learning is part of the job.“
