Oliver Pospiech

"Keen curiosity and the urge to see the world from changing perspectives. That's what keeps me on the ball." 

An interpreter’s life is never monotonous, no two days are ever the same. That’s what I like about the job. Also, it opens up new vistas and involves you in a permanent learning process. What else? Well, I’m half Spanish, so I’m at home not only in two languages but in two mentalities.
