Who we are

interpreti e professionistiConsorzio Romano Interpreti di Conferenza was founded in 1988 by a group of Rome-based members of the International Association of Conference Interpreters. Their goal was to establish a  multi-lingual interpretation service which would ensure that participants in international events from different countries could be sure of communicating with each other across language barriers both fully and precisely.

For over 20 years now CRIC has been providing its services to a wide range of customers (international institutions, banks, national and local government agencies, professional  and voluntary associations,  private companies, union and employers' organisations, educational, research and training institutions, etc. )

A number of features set CRIC apart from run-of-the-mill agencies and other operators. Taken together they add up to a recipe for excellence:

  • translate into their native languages
  • specialise in individual subject areas
  • have university-level training in Italy and abroad
  • are employed by international institutions such as the UN and the EU, which require accreditation tests and undertake regular performance monitoring
  • abide by professional secrecy
  • work hard to prepare the specialised terminology of meetings thoroughly
  • attend refresher courses to keep abreast of linguistic and social developments in countries which speak the languages they work in

CRIC also carries out ongoing training activities for its members, as well as for new interpreters, who thus come to share its emphasis on excellence. It also promotes Italian as a conference language by organising refresher courses on Italian language and culture for interpreters based abroad.  
All of CRIC's  members  belong to the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC)

CRIC is the largest group of international interpreters in Italy. Many leading organisations in the conference sector have come to see CRIC as a synonym for comprehensive, flexible, friendly and professional language services.
