Brazilian agri-business: a language that echoes across the globe

Maria Cristina Petrizzi will present a side of Brazilian agri-business most are unfamiliar with, providing a brief overview of the subject, including top commodities, main trade partners, biotechnology, including R&D, sustainability and the job market.

Cris will go on to look at what’s in it for linguists:

  • from talks to contracts
  • from transcription to subtitling
  • from interpreting on farms or for important world leaders
  • from science to law

The importance of qualifications and specialisation in this industry.
