Aroldis Chapman is now a major leaguer. This guy throws heat heat heat!

I envy the guy sitting next to him, his interpreter. Good luck to him.

Not very accurate, is he? Sep 2, 2010

or have they cut out parts of the press conference? Seems I don't get to hear much of Arnoldus talking and the other guy just goes on and on.icon_confused.gif

TOPIC STARTER
Aroldis Sep 2, 2010

I was waiting for someone to make that comment. I thought the editing of the interview was the culprit, but I'm not so sure. We'll see if the same interpreter is there for the next interview. I'd like to volunteer for the position!

Me siento muy orgulloso = I feel really happy?

I think the interpreter did finally say, "I feel really proud", but where does he get all that extra stuff from?

During the first part, it could have been. But the second statement was obviously there in full.

He should've said that in the first place. I've seen colleagues go on to fill up the empty space, but they generally had something to base their paraphrasing on (because it's basically a paraphrasing technique). To obtain that he should've let Aroldis (got it this time) talk on a little more.

There's something about the press conference set-up that can make interpreters defensive. It's basically the fact that you're one against so many people wanting to butt in. But I think this may have been over-reacting, not to mention dangerous.
