"I was interpreting simultaneously, and needless to say, the days before the assignment were extremely stressful.

"In fact it has been a crescendo of mixed feelings and a rollercoaster of emotions – excitement, fear, happiness and nerves – right up to the time he entered the Synod Hall at the Vatican City to a standing ovation. The whole event was very moving, with loud applause while he received gifts from children.

"However, as soon as I started interpreting, my nerves vanished and I was calm. I was incredulous to see him on my screen and to be actually interpreting his speech.

"There is no doubt that this assignment is the highlight of my career so far."

With a base in London as well as Cambridge, One Stop Language Solutions offers services in more than 150 languages.

Luciana’s clients over the past two decades have included governments, the G8, UN, NATO, Europol and Interpol.  Her extensive experience in commercially or diplomatically sensitive arenas has made her a trusted partner for a range of high profile figures.

“We have built a strong reputation for our friendly, personal and professional approach in providing interpreting services for companies, events, conferences, exhibitions or business meetings, as well as for accurate, carefully researched translations," she says.

Part of the company’s appeal is its flexibility – projects are diverse and have involved working for politicians, economists and strategists across Europe and beyond.  One Stop has also worked with experts in subjects ranging from toxicology to medical device manufacturing, biosciences to analytic computing, ophthalmology to defence.
