Rosaura Bartumeu Cassany
"Over the course of my career I have provided and managed teams of interpreters for meetings and conferences in widely differing fields. The one highlight that has undoubtedly given me the greatest personal and professional satisfaction, however, was providing interpretation for the Andorran Constitution-making process.
In this process, I experienced firsthand a period of unique historic importance for my little country. As consultant interpreter, I was privileged to contribute at the highest level by providing interpretation services throughout the negotiations of the tripartite commission formed by representatives of the Parliament of Andorra, and of the two Co-Princes which drafted the Andorran constitution. This was a great honour for me as an Andorran citizen and a big challenge and responsibility as a professional.
I am also honoured that my country's foremost institutions entrust me with the task of interpreting on the occasion of the most important official visits. Specifically, I recall with special emotion the visits of the Co-Princes François Mitterrand (1986), Nicolas Sarkozy (2010) and François Hollande (2014), as well as that of Ban Ki-moon (2013), which marked the first official visit of a United Nations Secretary-General to Andorra."

“Ms. Rosaura Bartumeu Cassany, member of Calliope-Interpreters, has been very efficient in forming and coordinating the team of interpreters for the two editions of the Andorran Colloquium on Constitutional Justice, in which representatives of constitutional courts and prestigious jurists from around the world took part. Her excellent work was highly appreciated by our institution as well as by our international guests.”
Meritxell Tomàs Baldrich, Secretary General, Constitutional Court of Andorra
“The interpreting services of Rosaura Bartumeu and Calliope-Interpreters have been of great help in assuring our good communication with the people who have visited the Andorran Parliament and with those who have taken part in our parliamentary meetings. Likewise, their effectiveness and professionalism in organizing the interpreting services for the Andorran Parliament's various events have been acknowledged by all.”
Elisenda Vives, Chief of Protocol, Parliament of Andorra
"Government of Andorra: “On taking up the presidency of the Consortium of the Pyrenees Work Community (CTP), an organization marked by its broad linguistic diversity, the CTP's specific technical character made it necessary to contract a reliable company with long experience in interpreting.
Consequently, we are delighted that Rosaura Bartumeu, a member of Calliope-Interpreters and the director of Lèxic, an Andorran language services company of great prestige and high professional standing, was selected to organize and coordinate the interpreter teams required for the working meetings throughout the two-year period (November 2013- November 2015) in which Andorra will held the CTP presidency.”
