Course description:

Day 1: Paperless Preparation

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.

Day 2: Long Consec Techniques & Technology

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.
