Our interpreting and translation company


V.I.T.A. was founded in Vienna in 1991 by two conference interpreters, Brigitte Schächter-Hold and C. Naomi Osorio-Kupferblum. V.I.T.A. was the first interpreting agency in Vienna to focus on the congress and meetings sector. In 1996, V.I.T.A. Paris became the second mainstay of our interpreting and translating company. Together, our offices offer professional language services for all types of international projects and in every field. For more details of the services provided, visit references.
