As we open a new year here at Preciso, I would like to take a moment to express my gratitude for 2014–a truly amazing year. Here are some highlights:
- The University of Arizona’s National Center for Interpretation selected me for a scholarship to attend the Agnese Haury Institute of Court Interpreting, and I got to complete 125 hours of advanced, hands-on professional training in Tucson, AZ.
- My interview with Javier Becerra was chosen for January 2015 publication in the American Translators Association Chronicle.
- I was privileged to attend the National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translator conference in Las Vegas, NV.
- I helped organize a monthly meet-up for court interpreters in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. We have had great turnouts and everyone wants these special times to relax and talk shop to continue.
- Preciso partnered with Human Rights Initiative of Dallas and Camp Summit to provide pro bono translation services for these great local non-profit organizations.
And, last but not least, the American Translators Association notified me that I passed its notoriously rigorous certification exam to earn the title of Certified Translator for Spanish>English. I can’t wait to update my business cards to display my Certified Translator seal.
In short, it has been an incredible year. I am grateful for every opportunity and to my wonderful clients and colleagues for your continued support. Here’s to an even better 2015!
