I need your collaboration.

For training purposes, I am trying to gather short phrases (10-12 seconds) that could occurr in telephone interpretation in the fields of Medicine, Banking and Finance, Car/Home Insurance, etc.

I intend to create digital audio files by having them recorded by a variety of individuals to take advantage of the different voice pitches, accents etc.

Once catalogized, the files could be randomly listened by means of a free audio player software. Some of this audio players permit also to assign a score to the "exercise" so that they will be replied less often - or ignored altogether - if the score is sufficiently high. A good training fro consecutive translation and note taking.

I have devised this project for my own benefit, at first. Not an easy task for a rookie in telephone interpretation, withouth the collaboration of you, knowledgeable people out there.

I'll be glad to share the results of this venture to anyone who will request them.

Thanks for helping.
