Lisa Carducci (Canada)

Born in Montreal from an Italian father and a French Canadian mother, translation became a daily situation in my early life. My father didn’t want me to learn his dialect, which he called “bad Italian”, but he couldn’t teach me “good Italian”. My mother’s French was also a dialect, what I discovered when I attended school and started reading.

Books also offered a variety of languages-inside-the language, and I was attracted by the variety of ways to express the same thing.

I became a linguist -- a phonologist, and my thesis examined how sounds were pronounced in one specific Italian dialect. My 11 “samples” spoke no other language than their dialect; had never lived out of their village; had not received influence from National TV, or from children attending university or working in a city. In 1981, I went to Spain and learned the language in one month.

It is through Linguistics that I was struck by the simple structure of Chinese language: Where French "aller" needs 92 conjugations, verb 去 remains "qu". I then decided to go to China and learn the language while teaching French and Italian. There was a huge need for translators, and I became one.
