MULTILATERAL is not a translation agency. It is a professional services company with a strong emphasis in languages and cross-cultural communication run by its owner and lead interpreter, Cecilia Lipovsek.

However, as I can only be in one place at any given time, I sometimes rely on my selected network of trusted colleagues and strategic partners both in Latin America and in Britain to ensure my clients receive the world-class service they deserve.
