After two weeks of vacation at the Baltic Sea, getting back to work, for me, meant getting on a plane to Romania. The country, which holds a special place in my heart, currently prepares to take over the rotating Presidency of the European Union from Austria, starting in January 2018. As interpreters working from Romanian, we want to be ready for that, and so a bunch of us gathered in Bucharest for a one-week “refresher course” organised by our Romanian colleagues in DG Interpretation.
