Meet the MATI Board: Marina Ilari
MATI Director Marina Ilari works in English and Spanish. She has a degree in Literary Translation from the Universidad del Museo Social Argentino.
Why did you decide to join MATI? I wanted to meet colleagues in the area who work in the translation industry. I think it’s important to create professional relationships, so you are able to support and help one another in reaching your professional goals. I wanted to have the opportunity to learn about news in the industry and share new ideas and information.
What is your favorite part of the workday? My favorite part of the workday is very early in the morning. My energy is replenished, and I enjoy answering emails and getting ready to start a new day of work. Every day is different in this profession, and I enjoy the new challenges.
What do you do in your free time? Most of my free time is spent with my family. I have a son and a baby daughter, and I love to do activities with them. I’m a theater lover, so now that my son is old enough, I’m taking him to the theater and sharing that passion with him.
What are you most looking forward to about your participation on the MATI Board? Meeting new colleagues and making friends that share the same interests as me.
