Name: Florencia Pasquale
Role: United Nations Online Volunteer/ GNDR Spanish translator
About me: I attended university in Argentina, where I obtained my degrees in Conference Interpreting, Sworn Translation and Scientific & Literary Translation. Working as a translator for the United Nations through the Online UNV program, I gained extensive experience in areas such as: disaster risk reduction, community development, equality, human rights, humanitarian aid, and climate change, among others. I take pride and pleasure in working for organisations such as: GNDR (Global Network for Disaster Risk Reduction) and BBC Media Action.
Interest working with GNDR: I have been translating for GNDR from English into Spanish for four years. I mainly translate digital content for their website and internal communications of the network, although I have also proofread and reviewed some material. I am passionate about what I do and I love translating for GNDR, as I feel that I am using my skills and knowledge to contribute boosting the noble task of the network of reducing Disaster Risk and empowering affected communities to overcome the consequences of disaster and climate change.
Career aspirations: My professional aspiration is to work as a translator and interpreter within an international organisation, facilitating communication between the global leaders and local communities worldwide, eliminating language barriers and make key policies and concepts understandable to contribute to the promotion of initiatives aimed at achieving common goals, while ensuring a safe and secure world with equal opportunities for everybody.
