There is a really interesting article about using tablets in the interpreter's booth on the new termcoord.eu website: http://termcoord.eu/2013/11/video-of-the-week-ipad-interpreter/the iPad

'Video of the week: iPad interpreter

This week's video presents Alexander Drechsel, DG INTERPRETATION, European Commission, giving us some ideas about how the tablet can be used by interpreters in the booth.'

PS: Termcoord.eu is the new address of the old termcoord blog, which is still online, here: http://termcoord.wordpress.com/

Not convinced Nov 27, 2013

Come on, this looks almost like an iPad commercial to me.

There's no way anyone can convince me that what he's doing is easier to do on a tablet than on a laptop. Sure it's light, but there are amazing ultrabooks out there that weigh only 1-1.5 kg and are faster and cheaper that iPads.
