Job description:

We're looking for interpreters or students of interpreting to participate in a roughly 45-minute study aimed at helping us design better computer assistance for interpreters. The study can be completed on any computer with internet connection, Chrome or Firefox browser, and a microphone.

In this study, you will be recorded interpreting three roughly 5-minute speeches from Spanish into English while looking at a visual interface. After completing the three speeches, you will read through an excerpt from a technical document in Spanish and mark phrases you would want to see a quality translation for or have a glossary entry for if you were interpreting the document. This annotation task should take about ten minutes.

This study is part of research by the University of Maryland on improving computer assistance for interpretation. It is funded by a grant from NSF, a not-for-profit U.S. federal agency (https://nsf.gov/about/). If you are interested in participating, please contact the researcher:
