Video Clips and Testimonials

"Nataly Kelly’s presentation of her book, Found in Translation, was one of our best programs this year. The thing that makes Nataly so special is that she takes the time to tailor her presentation to the audience, both in words and pictures.


Her talk at the Carter Presidential Library not only covered the importance of translation in our everyday lives, she gave specific instances where it played an important role for President Carter as well as other Presidents.


Nataly is an engaging speaker who can delight an audience with her stories. I don’t know many people who can take a potentially dry topic such as ‘translation’ and turn it into a fascinating evening. That’s exactly what Nataly did."


— Tony Clark, Jimmy Carter Museum

"Nataly Kelly charmed, engaged and wowed students and others when she spoke at Pierce College. Her stories and data changed the perspective of students, faculty and community members on the role of language services in today’s world. The interpreting students particularly benefited from seeing their role on the global stage so clearly illustrated."


— Therese Mirande, Coordinator and Professor of World Languages and Language Interpreting, Pierce College
