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, a full-service conference interpreting company in Spain.
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 currently the Coordinator of AIIC Training and Professional Development and have volunteered in the past for AIIC’s social media channels, blog, and VEGA, the association’s support network for new interpreters.
I also contribute to the training of the next generation of conference 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.
