( Note to moderator: I wasn't sure in which forum to post this, French, Interpretation, or Professional Development )

Hello everybody, I just found something interesting for those looking for some basic training and in starting out interpreting or perfecting their techniques.

Before deciding on a more formal education, I've been looking for something that gives me a good idea of the interpreting field's how to's. This way I can see if I have the necessary skills to expand into it from translation.
If any of you are like me, you'd like the idea of this seminar, held in Paris.

I found it on the following website http://www.sft.fr/formations/IDF_InterpretationLiaison23-250605.htm

It is a 3-day seminar that discusses in depth the different kinds of interpretation and it's application. It seems well thought out and is targeted at interpreters with little or moderate experience looking to perfect their techniques.

An extra plus for those of us who freelance in France, this seminar qualifies for funding from URSSAF (FIF PL in particular).
This means, if you've been paying your URSSAF contributions for being a freelance, you should have also paid a 40 euro contribution to the professional training fund. This makes you eligible training/education/seminar reimbursement.

The seminar takes place June 23-25 2005, so if you want Urssaf to pick up the tab, you should get your file in order.

Hope this helps someone!

PS, If this interests someone, let me know. Maybe we could meet up beforehand.
