AIIC VEGA goes to FTSK Germersheim – Germany

Great event for future colleagues at FTSK Germersheim: On 10 May  Germany's AIIC VEGA representative Andrea Borges spoke to an audience of 55 students, professors and recent graduates about AIIC, VEGA, professional standards, code of ethics, paths towards AIIC membership, as well as current trends & statistics in conference interpreting. The event was simultaneously translated into English, Spanish, French, Russian, Italian, Polish, and Dutch. Andrea's talk was followed by a lively Q&A session - thanks to everyone at FTSK Germersheim who made this possible!
