Who is the instructor?

I'm originally from Switzerland 🇨🇭, I served as Treasurer for the Carolina Association of Translators and Interpreters (CATI), was a member of the board for the Swiss Association of Charlotte, and I've been involved with Freelance translation for over a decade, both as a translator as well as an agency.

I've been a featured speaker at ATA-sponsored events, as well as the New Zealand Society of Translators and Interpreters Annual Conference.

I started off working in banking in Switzerland, and then I received a Master’s degree (M.P.A.) from Cornell University in Finance. After this, however, I set out to build a career as a Freelance Translator and gradually set up my own Translation Agency, Lugano Translations.
