I was very lucky to meet her in 2021 at the ATA Annual Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States. She was the guest speaker and her presentation was inspiring and super insightful towards the possibilities of our profession as translators.

Globalization is also very much about listening. Listen to what your colleagues in different languages are trying to tell you. That is very, very important. So, slow down. Think. This is teamwork. You have to become a team.

Remember that we are humans. People FIRST, Anna emphasizes.

At length, this book changed the way I used to see many processes and stages. Anna´s experience and explanations are essential to master this game.

Follow her and try to apply all her tips to boost your business and be TRULY GLOBAL!

Thanks again, Anna! We truly appreciate your valuable time and endless contribution to our work! THANKS!!
