The International Society of Female Professionals Recognizes Carina Balbo


A linguist and educationalist at heart, from an early age, her love for languages led her to pursue a degree in Translation and in Teaching English as a Foreign Language at the National University of Córdoba, Argentina. She worked part-time as a freelance translator and full-time as a teacher of English and English Literature at Language Schools, Secondary Schools, and at the National University of Cordoba as an EAP and ESP Tutor.

After moving to the UK in 2002, she started working full-time as a freelance translator while finishing her MA in Applied Linguistics & TESOL (University of Leicester) with a dissertation on Bilingualism. A few years later, she was awarded an MA (Merit) in Management by the London Metropolitan University with a dissertation on Total Quality Management in Secondary Schools. Carina is a Certified Localisation Professional, a Member of The Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIOL), and a Chartered Linguist as a Translator and in Education. She has also been elected as a Member of the CIOL Council, for the second consecutive period. She has combined 25 years’ experience in the translation profession and in foreign language teaching and co-founded My Language Hub with her husband, a language service company based in Hertfordshire, UK. She has recently published a textbook that prepares students for the IGCSE exam in First Language Spanish, and is developing a programme for linguists and language professionals who wish to make a career pivot into the translation and interpreting profession.
