Note-taking for Interpreters: Conference Interpreting

This seminar by Kirsty Heimerl-Moggan is a natural follow-on from the introductory seminar and looks more closely at the criteria from the introductory workshop applied to the work of conference interpreters. Participants are given very useful and practical ideas and suggestions for some note-taking symbols in key areas; the aim being to stimulate the creation of their own individual set of symbols which will improve the quality of their conference interpreting work. Kirsty is a very experienced conference interpreter and very adept at drawing out and highlighting the key areas budding conference interpreters need to work on to build up their note-taking skills.

Kirsty Heimerl-Moggan is Senior Lecturer in Conference Interpreting at the University of Central Lancashire (UCLan), and has taught Interpreting at Postgraduate level at 4 different universities in the UK and in Munich, Germany for the last 15 years.

Other webinars in this series are:

  • Introduction, looking at basic note-taking techniques for all interpreters,
  • Public Service Interpreting, looking at note-taking in the reality of the work of public service/community interpreters,
  • Business Interpreting, looking at note-taking in the reality of the work of business interpreters.

    Clear, concise and relevant.

    Brilliant, keep having Kirsty and others like her.

    Many thanks for this excellent webinar.

    An excellent presenter.

    I thought that Kirsty was a very good presenter. She obviously has a wealth of experience to draw on, but I felt she presented her ideas in a way that was very comprehensible and clear.
