Long Consec & Paperless Preparation

Miami, 27-28 July 2019

About the Training

Paperless Preparation

27 July 2019

There is a general understanding among practitioners that preparation is related to higher quality and job satisfaction. Preparing for some assignments could be described as a paradox. Interpreters might be given all the material needed for thorough preparation, though they might receive it very close to the time of the conference. In other cases, interpreters are given sufficient time to prepare but receive very few details on their assignment. This training will provide interpreters with a preparation method and IT tools that allow them to most effectively use their time and the material available when preparing for an assignment.

Long Consec Techniques & Technology

28 July 2019

Long consecutive is a mode that comes handy in many settings. It has a major advantage and that is it prevents interruptions of speakers. With the right preparation and techniques, accuracy and precision can be observed even when the interpreter is required to translate long accounts. Interpreters will be introduced to the long consecutive mode, techniques and exercises to hone their short-long consecutive skills. In addition, technology relevant to consecutive will be shared to augment skills and present an alternative to traditional methods.
