Join this webinar to explore different interpreting strategies, gain insight into how to handle difficult interpreting situations, and learn more practical techniques to improve your interpreting skills!

Have you ever struggled to keep up with fast speakers or felt nervous about interpreting numbers or quotations accurately? Whether you’re just starting out in interpreting or want to improve your skills, it’s important to have a solid practice routine. Join us for our upcoming webinar on interpreting practice techniques, where you’ll learn specific strategies for improving your interpreting skills.

Our presenter went from starting from scratch to passing the state court interpreter certification exam and earning a master’s degree in conference interpreting. Based on her experience, this session will help interpreters of any language combination develop a practice routine and better practice techniques. You’ll leave with the ability to learn simultaneous interpreting, deal with fast speakers, and break bad speaking habits like using filler words.

  2. Learn how to get started with simultaneous interpreting if you’ve never done it before
