This was originally posted on Lantra-L, but I thought many here would enjoy it.
It is a fascinating RealPlayer 30-minute radio broadcast from the BBC on simultaneous interpreting called “Breaking the Language Barrier”.
Topics covered include: - Interpreting for politicians - “Interpreting” unpleasant remarks - Simultaneous interpreting - nerves and stress / speakers correcting the interpreter - The origins of simultaneous interpreting with interviews from interpreters at the Nuremburg trials - Thinking ahead of the speaker / “Waiting for the verb” - Listening and speaking at the same time - Even the best make mistakes - “Creative” interpreters
