Letters and sentences noting or just note some marks in a simulteous interpreting Jun 3, 2016

Dear profesor:

I'm a freelance interpreter/translater. I'm wondering if is helpful to train myself on writing down marks in stead of words or sentences. Do you have any snuggestion? Thanks.

Dear Xuan,

I am sorry for not answering earlier. I have only now seen your message.

In simultaneous interpreting, time is more limited than in consecutive. This means that notes are easier made if they are really short so that I suggest signs/ illustrations and very concise abbreviations. In consecutive interpreting, we can use a combination of signs, symbols, abbreviations and simple illustrations.

I hope this helps.icon_smile.gif

Kind regards,
Jasmina

I find note-taking of any kinds is not effective since simultaneous interpretation aims at quickest and most accurate translation verbally. I practice how to mentally remember hard-to-do phrases better e.g. those related to figures, equation, foreign terms.
Consecutive/phone/whisper interpretation is more accurate and note-taking is quite effective for me.
