Hi there! I’m Michelle Hof, a professional conference interpreter and trainer. I work as a freelance interpreter (ACI) for the European Institutions in Brussels, Strasbourg, Luxembourg and Spain, and as as a consultant interpreter for AIB, an interpreting secretariat based in Barcelona.
As a member of AIIC, the International Association of Conference Interpreters, I am active in the promotion of the profession and the defense of its professional standards and code of ethics. I am an occasional contributor to the AIIC Blog and member for Spain of AIIC’s VEGA network for new interpreters.
I also contribute to the training of the next generation of interpreters. I currently hold the position of SCIC Key Trainer for the Master’s in Conference Interpreting at the University of La Laguna and am a close collaborator with the Master of Conference Interpreting at Glendon College, York University, Canada, where I work as a curriculum developer, trainer and field coordinator.
To find out more about me and my work, check out my profile on LinkedIn. I can be contacted directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or via my profile on Twitter, which is my preferred channel for interaction. The Interpreter Diaries blog also has a presence on Facebook and Google+.
