I've seen the Vatican mentioned in passing from time to time on this forum, and I was wondering if anyone had any information on interpreting for them? I know from personal contacts who have lived and worked there that they have freelancers in relatively often for conferences. Which languages are useful and what is a good way to get into it? (eg. I assume most of their interpreters are freelancers living in Rome, but I'm sure it's more complex than that!)

Just something I am curious about so any information at all would be wonderful! [Answers welcome in fr/it/de/en]
