Note Taking for Long Consecutive Interpreting Workshop (November 9, 2024)

Elevate Your Skills in 3 Hours: Dive into the Art of Consecutive Interpreting Note-Taking



Interpreting is a challenging cognitive process requiring an interpreter to juggle a number of competing tasks within a limited time. To be more specific, an interpreter does not only have to listen to the Source Text, understand what it means, but also reconstruct the message in the Target Language, and deliver it in a manner that accurately reflects the original speaker’s tone and emotions. As a result, interpreters are often required to strike a good balance among these competing tasks, so a message can be accurately conveyed in the other language. Effective note-taking is one of the critical skills interpreters explore to achieve such a balance, especially in long consecutive interpreting. This module looks at the basic rules of note-taking and how effective note-taking can facilitate interpreting performance.
