Happy Women’s History Month! March is such an important month for women around the world, and on the 8th we celebrated our International Day!
Of course, I think women should be celebrated all the time, not just one month or one day a year. So, today I want to talk about what makes women warriors, and how being freelance translators and interpreters make us even stronger.
I believe that the translation field is one of the few industries where women are the majority. Although this has changed through the years, with more men becoming translators and interpreters, women still represent an important figure.
And, as far as I have been able to experience, we are very supportive of each other. I know that competition will always exist among us, but as professionals, we also have the opportunity to learn so much from each other.
I’ve had the opportunity of learning so much from so many different women in my life, who have shaped who I am today. I should start with my mom. She’s the bravest and most amazing woman I know, I am always in awe of her.
I also had great mentors growing up. A TOEFL teacher changed my future when she asked me if I wanted to study translation after presenting my TOEFL exam. I didn’t even know the career existed! If it hadn’t been for her, I would not have found my passion.
So many teachers and translators who helped me along the way, you are all the best and you’ve made me not only a better translator but also a better person.
The colleagues from whom I learn every day something new. Who always support me and with whom I collaborate in such a great way. Thank you for your patience and your kindness.

Until the next time, take care and stay safe!
