The translators and interpreters of tomorrow: Beatrice Capocci

Dear friends of STUDIO TRE, in March we introduced you to Marta, who has a degree in Interpreting and a wonderful secret ambition: become an interpreter for the United Nations.

Marta, together with Roberta and Carlo, was one of the winners of the grant promoted by the University of Bologna which we funded to mark our 40th anniversary.

Today, we would like to introduce the fourth grant winner: Beatrice Capocci.

 

Beatrice Capocci | Future interpreter

Beatrice is from Trevi, a characteristic hamlet in the province of Perugia perched on a hill top covered with olive groves. She has a degree in Interpreting, following in the footsteps of her aunt, an ex student of SSLMIT (Section of Studies in Modern Languages for Interpreters and Translators) in Forlì.

When Beatrice deals with her daily challenges, her source of inspiration is Steve Jobs and her motto is summarised in this quote: “Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of other’s opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.”

 

Why did you choose a degree course in Interpreting?

While my aunt was doing the translation course, I grew up with a passion for languages and maths. Right from my early years at school, just how much I loved foreign languages, and especially speaking them, was very clear to me.

After my bachelor’s degree, there was only one path I wanted to follow: the entrance exam which would have opened the gateway to specialisation in Interpreting.

 

What’s your secret ambition and how will the grant help you to make it come true? 

The grant will allow me to continue studying the English language which for various reasons, I have had to put on the back-burner for the past few years. At university, I focussed on Spanish, French and Portuguese and now I’d like to improve my English skills.

I aim to expand my language training, which anyway I consider an ongoing process.

I have always thought that the job of my dreams must have something to do with foreign languages and interpreting… but I’m not excluding anything, I am a very inquisitive person and who knows what the future holds for me.
