About me

My name is Lucia Baldi and I am a conference interpreter, translator and university professor. My working languages are French, Russian, English and Italian.  

I am a qualified professional and I am UNI 11591:2015 certified (Professionals operating in the field of translation and interpretation). As such, I am a member of AITI (Associazione Italiana Traduttori e Interpreti), the Italian association for interpreters and translators, and of SFT (Société Française des Traducteurs), the analogous French association. I have almost 20 years of experience in the field of interpretation and translation, and since 2001, I have also taught at various schools specialized in teaching interpretation and translation as well as at language departments of French and Russian. For over ten years I have been an adjunct lecturer with the faculty at DIT (Department of Interpretation and Translation) of the University of Bologna, Forlì campus, where I have put my professional capacities to use by teaching conference interpretation (simultaneous and consecutive) and dialogue interpretation (for business negotiations), in both the 3-year university degree and the 2-year specialization degree. Since 2003 I have been a free-lance translator for the European Commission’s Directorate-General for Translation (DGT), and since 2017, for the Council of Europe. In the past, I worked for the Translation Centre for the Bodies of the European Union in Luxembourg (CdT). For several years now, I have also served as a CTU (Consulente Tecnico d’Ufficio), a technical consultant at the Law Court of Ancona in order to offer clients sworn translations and interpretation services. In 2001 I graduated in interpretation and translation at the University of Bologna, Forlì campus, from the School of Modern Languages for Interpreters and Translators (ex-SSLMIT), after which I did professional training abroad, specifically in Brussels (Institut Libre Marie Haps), Moscow (MGU Lomonosov), and Geneva (École de traduction et d'interprétation). I am firmly convinced of the importance of lifelong learning, and over the years I have participated in an executive program for International Business Management in order to strengthen my knowledge of international business, as well as a 2nd-level Master course on “Multimedia Languages and IT for teaching languages”. I have also participated in a lifelong-learning course through AITI, receiving a certificate of quality. For professional reasons I divide my time between Ancona, Forlì and Milan, but I also work in the rest of Italy and abroad, mainly in France and Belgium.

6 things about me

I decided to be an interpreter at 11, during an English lesson in middle school. Since then it’s been a tale of passion and steadfastness.

My relationship with social media? Undoubtedly good, but to give or get information, not for voyeurism or posting photos of me working. If you want that, there’s a reserved area under the References section… 

I hate idleness and wasting time, and I can’t blame myself for being a workaholic, but my holidays are sacred! 

I love working free-lance, but when I work in a team, I enjoy being a part of it and I can appreciate the group dynamic. 


I’m hardly an IT nerd, but technology has to be used when it simplifies life. So why not use it? 

Despite my tendency to be precise, I love challenges and choosing the roads less travelled. Why else would I have chosen an Executive Program in International Business management” ?
