Need more than just a translation skill Sep 19, 2011

Hi Claudia,

Your point of changing direction from being a translator to an interpreter (in this context, video interpreter) is correct, but that actually needs some skills as not everybody who can translate can do interpreting. In my opinion, besides having knowledge of translating the words, we need to have self confidence to be able standing in front of few audiences (or in this case, sitting in front of webcam) and leave no blank room in our mind, otherwise the translating knowledge will be useless.

Regards,
Yulia

Should such an on-line not be taught be a member of AIIC ((guarantees quality basic training by an interpreter with a conference-interpreting degree and quality mentorship) instead of a self-appointed interpreter.
