  • E101: Inside Specialization – Veterinary Translation
    Feb 28 2024

    Medical translation is a large umbrella, and it’s important to not overlook the many specialized, unique fields that stem from it! One of them is the important type of medical translation that deals not with human patients, but with our beloved small and large animals: veterinary translation.

    In this episode of Inside Specialization, we hear from Veronica Leibaschoff, who started out as a veterinarian and then changed her career through her love of language and culture by becoming a scientific translator and medical interpreter. It wasn't long until her professional backgrounds mixed and she specialized in veterinary translation. Learn about Veronica's journey, the unique space she has occupied, how she has kept current in her niche field by building a community of clients, and how much she is constantly learning and growing as she continues to explore her work.

  • E100: ATA’s Mastermind Program: An Inside Look
    Feb 15 2024

    Without a mentor, how do you expect to change and grow as a professional? That's where ATA's Mastermind Program comes in! Translators and interpreters often go into business understanding that finding and retaining clients will be hard work. What many fail to see, however, is the difficulty in running a business alone and not always knowing what to do next. ATA’s Mastermind Program offers peer-based mentoring designed to help you learn and develop professionally by working together in small groups to share knowledge on specific topics and work collaboratively to achieve your learning goals.

    In this episode of the ATA Podcast, co-host Andie Ho interviews Dolores R. Guiñazú, a two-time participant in the Mastermind Program. Dolores details her experience in the program, the professional and networking benefits she’s acquired, and why ATA members should apply. As a free resource for ATA members, this episode has all the reasons why you should consider applying to be a mastermind!
