Giselle is a US-trained journalist, but translating has always been her way of life. Ever since she was born in a bilingual family (French/Spanish); when she attended English-language school and college and graduated from Columbia University; when she served as press reporter for the UN General Secretariat in NYC; in her subsequent work in Brussels at the EU Commission, and as press liaison and publications editor at the Latin American Integration Association.
Now she is a full-time freelance translator/editor for public and international organizations, and at regional conferences in Montevideo. Each time she tackles a project, she enjoys learning new developments in different areas. Translating is her way of life… and she loves it.
