"Tips and Tricks for Remote Interpreters"

Tips & Tricks for Remote Interpreters - A presentation by Claudia Brauer for 2017 International Translation and Interpreting Day

All remote interpreters have one thing in common: they are not physically present at the location where the dual language exchange is taking place. Many interpreters are struggling to catch up to the evolution of technologies that have opened these new communication experiences. In the past, we focused mostly on the linguistic issues associated with interpreting. Now that we are working remotely, we need to bring to the forefront our humanity as part of our new soft skills. We will therefore review the following 10 novel tips and tricks to help you expand your skills set for remote encounters:
  1. Record yourself
  2. Train as a Transinterpreter
  3. Act the part
  4. Create mental pictures
  5. Use sensory substitution
  6. Use 1st person singular
  7. Act for the camera
  8. Be sure you are a good fit
  9. Become tech savvy
  10. Just do it!
