This session is a wake-up call to the future. Technology is transforming the profession at the speed of light. Instead of resisting technology, translators and interpreters must embrace it and learn how to use it to further their professional advancement and intercultural communication. Embracing constant change is vital for survival in the global village of the 21st century.

If translators and interpreters do not become part of the digital revolution occurring in the second decade of this new millennium, we will be left out of the loop of progress... just what happened a few decades ago to those office workers and freelancers (including translators) who refused to learn how to use a computer ... they quickly became professionally obsolete because they were no longer able to interact in the modern interconnected world. Today, we need to learn about the new tools that have been quickly becoming an intrinsic part of the modern world.

I can't find this session's recording Apr 9, 2020

Hi, I've just joined the Remote Interpreting course and was directed to these videos. Is there a way to watch the recordings? Although there is a note at the beginning that this could be possible I wasn't able to find them. Thanks in advance!
