I believe it was 2021, in the very midst of the Covid-19 pandemic, when my dear colleague Alejandra González Campanella approached me with an idea: editing a special issue on a scientific journal about trauma and interpreting. “I’m in”, I said, even though I don’t think it was exactly an invitation. Since that day, it took us over a year to get that issue published. We contacted the New Voices in Translation Studies editorial team and never looked back. We happily became guest editors in a team of welcoming and flexible scholars who were happy to offer their support while also letting us lose to do what we thought best.
