Hey everybody,

I am a student in conference interpreting from the ISIT school in Paris. I have already completed the first year of the course (dedicated to consec) and I am on a break from college until next year.

I am based in Dublin at the moment and would love to hear from anyone who would be interested in practicing their consec or sight translation with me. My language combination is French A, English B and Spanish C.

Hi Cecile,

Why not try posting up a couple of notices in Dublin City University, where they run interpreting courses? I'm sure you'll find someone that way.

Unfortunately... May 13, 2006

Unfortunately the course in Conference Interpreting from Dublin City University stopped in 2002! There's always the MA in Translation Studies if you're interested.

I may be able to help you May 13, 2006

If you want I have some friends/colleagues who work as interpreters in Dublin. One of them did the course with me in Dublin and she's very good. They may agree to help you a bit on your consec. Email me directly if you're interested. I'll see if I can help you. Are you planning to work as an interpreter in Dublin?

I too am pretty sure they no longer run the course. However, if you contact the Secretary of the Irish Translators' and Interpreters' Association, she may be able to help you, as she is quite involved in the Community Interpreting issue. I prefer not to broadcast her name, but she also happens to be a lecturer at DCU:-)

Yes I think I know who you are talking about. She used to teach us classes on European institutions when I was doing the diploma in DCU. She is a very nice and helpful person. As far as I can recall she was very involved in Community Interpreting.
