Albion Idiomas

About us

Albion Idiomas was founded in 1997, initially to provide English lessons and written translations. In 2002 we started offering conference interpreting services (also known as simultaneous translation), which gradually took over as our main business activity.

As conference interpreting is normally done in pairs, we draw on the collaboration of a large network of freelance professionals. We handpick the interpreters we work with, ensuring they have the right experience for the job. And above all, a real commitment to quality, which is always our main objective.

The owner of Albion is British-born Rebecca Atkinson, who has lived in Rio de Janeiro since 1992. A translator, interpreter, holder of a master’s in language studies, and lecturer in translation at PUC-Rio university, she coordinates all the interpreting services, facilitating the communication with the event organiser to assure a service of the highest quality.
