NTIF SPEAKER 2019
Angelika Vaasa works at the Directorate-General for Translation of the European Parliament as the Head of Quality Coordination Unit. Her unit is responsible for the development and maintenance of the Quality Policy of the DG Translation. On the one hand, it involves discussing and agreeing on quality assurance and control principles with units representing 24 languages (a challenge!) and, on the other hand, handling and analysing any feedback on the quality of the services provided by the Directorate-General. Before taking up the position of the quality manager, Angelika worked as translator, interpreter and trainer. She has degrees in linguistics, interpretation, teacher training and EU Law.
