President Sarkozy's official interpreter Amanda Galsworthy has spent nearly three decades at the centre of international politics.
President Sarkozy's official interpreter Amanda Galsworthy has sat at the top table of international politics for nearly three decades, but her name has hardly ever appeared in print. It is part of her job to know everything, but to tell no one. Amanda Galsworthy has been the official interpreter for three French Presidents, Francois Mitterand, Jacques Chirac and now Nicolas Sarkozy. She talks to Owen Bennett-Jones about some of the extraordinary situations she's found herself in as the President's mouthpiece.
