Good episode? Give it some love!
Thank you for joining me for this episode of Speaking Tongues- the podcast in conversation with multilinguals.  My guest today is Josie, the founder of Lumina Translations. 
In this episode Josie talks about growing up in a Venezuelan Spanish & Sicilian speaking home and how those two cultures came together in her life. We talk about learning French in Canada and the dialect of French that was taught during her studies. Josie tells us that she not only taught herself to speak Spanish but she also learned to speak standard Italian through her husband. 
And because Josie is a translator, she’s telling us all about her career path from interpretation into translation and talks about the important distinctions between the two rather distinct career paths. I think translation is such important work and I hope that anyone out there listening to this episode with their eye on becoming a translator will find some inspiration in Josie’s story! Big thank you to Josie for having this conversation with me for this episode.
