Sim-Consec as a tool for Consecutive Interpreting
Whether you are a conference, business, police and court or public service interpreter, technology can be employed to improve your consecutive performance. This webinar will introduce you to sim-consec; a mode of interpreting that combines elements from consecutive and simultaneous interpreting. The different forms of sim-consec will be introduced. You will learn how to turn your tablet into a notebook with an edge. With a couple of minor additions, your own smart phone can add another string to its bow. The magic like digital pen and smart paper will be explained in detail. We will discuss the advantages and see if the disadvantages are worth it.
For many interpreters, consecutive interpreting is a bit daunting as it involves taking notes and deciphering them while being on the spot! If consec is not your favourite or strongest mode of interpreting, this webinar will help you to up your game. This webinar is suitable for both practising interpreters and interpreting students.
All webinars are recorded: if you miss the live session, you will be able to view the recording later.
