As opposed to translators, interpreters seldom utilize technology in their practice. This training aims to bring interpreters up to speed with a number of digital tools that could increase their efficiency. The main components of the training are:
- Simultaneous Consecutive. This is a hybrid mode of interpreting for colleagues not comfortable working in
consecutive mode.
- Paperless Preparation. This part looks at Computer Aided Interpreting (CAI) tools, apps for document
annotation, glossary management and online preparation resources.
- Note digitisation. This part reviews apps and tools for digitising hand written notes to easily search them and
organise them.
- Apps and gadgets that facilitate an interpreter’s life on the go.
