I’m sure that you will find this post by Gio Lester as interesting as I did. Gio’s energetic career spans three decades and two countries – her homeland, Brazil, and her chosen home, the USA. She has been working as a translator since 1980. She also enjoyed a 9-year career in international banking, twenty-odd years as a language instructor, and three years in the Internet field as a manager creating, deploying, and editing content for banking and marketing companies.
She is a (very!) active member of the American Translators Association, and of NAJIT, amongst others. Gio frequently gives presentations both in the USA and abroad on the subject of translation and interpreting, and is also an experienced trainer.
