Welcome to PaP – Parola ai Professionisti!
What is PaP?
PaP – Parola ai Professionisti was born in Italy on 13th February 2019 as an archive of articles on translation and interpreting written by highly qualified Italian translators and interpreters with English, French, Spanish, German, Russian, Dutch, Arabic, and Chinese as working languages.
PaP members soon recognised the great potential of this project and decided to become active on the Web.
Today PaP is a dynamic network of translators and interpreters that offer their commission-free, multilingual services in the fields of translation and interpreting to private individuals, companies, and specialised agencies.
We’ve now gone into 2020 and PaP is becoming international. Our website now has its English and Spanish versions.
Who can benefit from it?
Companies: to find the translator or interpreter they are looking for and call them. HERE you will find a list of specialised professionals. They are competent, they are experts in their field, they are well travelled, and they have a cosmopolitan mindset. They are the new generation of highly qualified freelancers. They are readily available and offer a commission-free service. Press CV PaP interpreters and translators HERE to find the professional that suits you best.
Freelancers: if they are well-established professionals or have undergone specialised training and want a free spot to showcase their skills on the web, they are in the right place. But bear in mind that, for now, one of your working languages must be Italian.
Translation and interpreting enthusiasts: on PaP you will find a selection of articles, dissertation abstracts, and specific content concerning translation and interpreting. Just click on the “PaP Articles” section.

Passive members are welcome (also undergraduate and postgraduate students) and can write articles with their name and surname at the end of them. They will not be allowed to enter the group chat with job offers or to write their own PROFESSIONAL CARD. Those who join the group as passive members can ask later on to become an active member.
