Conference Consecutive for Court Interpreters Webinar

Not all utterances are created equal, and interpretations are based not on words alone. The expert interpreter must be able to look past the words to the ideas. S/he must assimilate the logic of the phrase and organize it appropriately in their minds before the pen hits the paper. In this workshop, participants will learn to organize their thoughts the way that conference interpreters do, by analyzing the structure of 2-3 minute speeches. This will allow for better focus and the ability to bypass the panic caused by a speaker going beyond a couple of sentences. Participants will then learn how to apply this organization to their written notes for court interpreting.
