Conference interpreter for the Seminary of Barcelona

The Seminary of Barcelona is located behind the Central University of Barcelona, in Diputació Street, in a building in the neo-medieval and predominantly neo-Romanesque historicist style, designed by Elías Rogent.

It currently houses the Faculty of Theology of Catalonia and the Faculty of Philosophy of Ramon Llull University. It also houses the Episcopal Public Library of Barcelona and the Geological Museum of the Seminary of Barcelona.

It is in this beautiful setting that Véronique Margron, President of the Conference of Religious Affairs of France, inaugurated the academic year of the Joan Margall Foundation, “Christianity and Culture”.

 

 

Intérprete de conferencia durante el 19è Concurs Internacional de Roses Noves de Barcelona

Durante el 19º Concurs Internacional de Roses Noves de Barcelona el jurado internacional y la ciudadanía han escogido permiar la rosa KO 08/2288-05 de Kordes Rosen como la Rosa Ciudadana 2019, con 563 votos de los 6425 recogidos durante el certamen.

El concurso se ha celebrado entre el 10 y el 12 de mayo en la rosaleda del Parc de Cervantes, coincidiendo como cada año con la floración de las rosas y siendo una de las muestras de las mejores nuevas creaciones de cultivadores de rosas de todo el mundo.

Todas las variedades concursantes son inéditas y han sido creadas por roseristas a partir del cruce con otras variedades ya existentes, por lo que necesitan dos años de trabajo antes de poder ser presentadas.

Este año la Rosa Ciudadana ha sido dedicada a Neus Català, la última superviviente de los campos de exterminio nazis, que falleció recientemente a la edad de 103 años. Así mismo se ha bautizado la plaza de la rosaleda en la que se celebra el concurso con el nombre de “Dones de Ravensbrück”.

Neus Català, nacida en Guiamets (Tarragona) en 1915 y de profesión enfermera, luchó toda su vida por la memoria de sus compañeros y de todos los deportados, detenidos y asesinados por régimen nazi. Militante comunista desde la juventud, durante sus últimos años mantuvo su implicación política en el Partido Comunista de Catalunya (PCC) y en Izquierda Unida y Alternativa (EUiA).

En 1939 cruzó la frontera francesa con 180 niños huérfanos que estaban a su cuidado en Premià de Dalt (Barcelona) y, junto con su marido, colaboró en actividades de la resistencia francesa contra la invasión nazi. En 1944 fue deportada a Ravensbrück donde fue obligada a trabajar en la industria de armamento, donde formó un comando que clandestinamente boicoteaba la fabricación de armas.

Tras ser liberada, Català, regresó a Francia donde continuó su lucha clandestina contra el franquismo. La Generalitat le concedió en 2005 la Creu de Sant Jordi y en 2015 la Medalla de Oro, y en 2014 el Ayuntamiento de Barcelona le otorgó la Medalla de Oro al Mérito Cívico.

Conference interpreter during the international conference of Telefonica executiva managers

Universitas Telefónica is committed to training the employees of Telefónica and other companies, turning them into Digital Transforming Leaders, which will allow them to take on the challenges of the digital revolution in which we live.

Universitas counts on a wonderful space that allows them to disconnect entirely from their daily lives and focus 100% on their mission during their stay on campus.

The leaders of the future must understand how technology impacts exponentially on the customer, the business and the societies where we are present; they must drive the transformation and know how to make the most of a world of infinite possibilities.

As Mark Freer said in his motivational talk:

If you are not excited about it, it’s not the right path.

Conference interpreter during the Operación Triunfo Christmas Gala 2018

The Christmas Gala by Operación Triunfo had a very special guest, the French singer Zaz, considered in France the new Edith Piaf.

Zaz (Isabelle Geffroy) has the spark, the joy, the rhythm and the desire to live of a young artist with a meteoric musical career. Zaz leaves no one indifferent. During the gala, she gave a wink to the second place, sharing with her a beautiful and catchy song in which she gives up on all material things in favour of a life of love, joy, humour, freedom and absence of cliches.

So much energy, so many young people together showing talent and a desire live to the fullest!
