Juliet has always been an active part of the translation
community and particularly enjoys being involved
with novice translators and taking advantage of the
opportunity to meet fellow translators at events organised
by EU institutions and professional bodies.
Juliet has run the Institute of Translation and Interpreting Italian Network on a voluntary basis for 20 years and during that time has set up two websites and a newsgroup and organised countless professional and social events.
Her work as a lecturer and external examiner has brought her into contact with many translation MA students. Over the years, she has taken on a few students as paid short-term interns, which has proved an invaluable start to their careers. She has provided helpful advice and support to many others.
As well as teaching on the translation MA at Surrey University, Juliet has also given talks on life as a freelance translator at the Universities of Surrey and Swansea.
She has attended seminars at the European Commission DG Translation in Brussels and at the Translation Centre for the Bodies of the European Union in Luxembourg. She has also given a talk on her experiences as a contractor for the European Commission at the Commission Representative Office in London.
She also recently passed the tough standards to become a member of the Certified PRO network of ProZ.com, the leading virtual translators’ workspace.
Juliet is also a very long-standing member of the Italian Chamber of Commerce in the UK and more recently the British Italian Society and attends many translation community events.
