Do you want to work as an interpreter in the community, or in business, or the healthcare industry? Do you think you can work as an interpreter for the military or the courts? Did you know that interpreting is growing at a rate of 22% per year, more than most other professions? This is your first step to your professional development!
Learn the underpinnings of Consecutive Interpreting, the most popular form of interpreting. The interpreter listens to several sentences delivered by a speaker in the source language, taking notes to ensure accuracy and completeness in the capture of the message; the speaker then stops talking to allow the interpreter to deliver the verbal interpretation of the message; during such pause, the interpreter conveys the information out loud and clearly, in the target language; the speaker and any other parties involved listen in silence to the interpreter; once the interpreter stops, the same speaker or a different one will start speaking again while the interpreter listens. The cycle is repeated until the conversation ends.
During this workshop you will learn the basic roles of the consecutive interpreter as a conduit, a clarifier, a culture broker and an advocate. You will understand the importance of ethics, cultural competence, confidentiality, accuracy, completeness, impartiality, professional courtesy, and impediments to performance. You will learn about standards of practice, legislation and regulations (or the lack thereof), certification and training available.
Stress will be given to the need for highly developed note-taking skills. Information will be shared about exercises to improve memory and how to analyze ideas to understand content. Practice exercises will be provided to learn how to listen for meaning and how to prepare for interpreting assignments, including guides to acquire linguistic knowledge and technical terminology in the primary and secondary working languages, in different specialties and industries.
Fully bilingual personnel who wish to enter the language industry

At the completion of this workshop, you will clearly understand the training and competencies required to work as a consecutive interpreter, including the core processes of critical thinking, decision-making, and the ability to assess cultural interactions. You will have learned the work you must undertake to follow the most important standards of practice, and to acquire vocabulary and context, improve memory and note taking, ensure quality, accuracy, thoroughness, equivalency and correct usage; and how to deliver your message with adequate enunciation, speed , efficiency and effectiveness.

Thank you for your kind answer. I am very sorry to hear this webinar will not be repeated live again, not in the near future anyway!
You know, just as a suggestion, perhaps Proz can do a little more publicity regarding webinars, for example, you can probably add a small 'window' like the 'featured translator' one, with something like 'Upcoming webinars this week'... or so. I know you have a section for Upcoming ProZ.com offline events and online training sessions at the bottom of the home page, but maybe some people doesn´t take the time to go all the way down!
Also, is it possible for you all to plan webinars to be conducted in two different dates, just like you do with Trados webinars? In my case, I was very interested to attend this webinar, but I wasn´t able to do it on the date scheduled. If there are two dates available, it gives more chances to participants.
Well, I greatly appreciate all the efforts you are doing in organizing all these training events for us.
Thank you, Elena
