THE SAVVY TERP® is on a mission to help fellow conference interpreters working in the private market build solid and successful businesses and careers with a purpose and in their own style.
I believe that by strengthening each link/interpreter in the chain the whole professional community benefits and, while at it, so do our clients.
As Seth Godin very well put it, our work is simply too important to be left to luck.
ABOUT THE SAVVY TERP®
THE SAVVY TERP® is a professional coaching and training programme for conference interpreters working in the private market run by its owner and creator of MULTILATERAL, Cecilia Lipovsek, in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals 13 and 17.
Therefore, all THE SAVVY TERP® activities are conducted online or offered in electronic format only, with the exception of the occasional coffee meetup here and there.
ABOUT CECILIA LIPOVSEK
I am Cecilia Lipovsek – the Diplomatic Interpreter.
Based in the heart of London, my team and I help Latin America and the UK work seamlessly together.
I am a communicator through and through; from the heart. It makes me cringe when I hear someone say that some things are untranslatable. There might not be a dictionary entry for it, but human experience is always conveyable. All it takes is the right approach.
Born in Buenos Aires and a Londoner by adoption since 2015, I have lived and worked on both sides of the Atlantic, a foot on each side of the language and cultural divide.
The more I do my job (eighteen years and going!), the more I believe that words do connect worlds.
2003 – Started my career as an interpreter in Buenos Aires
2010 – After having trained 200+ over-the-phone interpreters, decided to go freelance and moved on to business translation and conference interpreting
2015 – I jumped and relocated to London! Launched MCL, now MULTILATERAL, and specialised in diplomatic interpreting and corporate communication.
2020 – I launched THE SAVVY TERP® to help fellow interpreters navigate the post-Covid world as interpreters and business owners
