The Craft of Note-taking: Theory & Practice (Spanish/English)

The National Center for Interpretation is pleased to announce a webinar designed for Spanish/English interpreters!

Having a reliable note-taking system is key to interpreting effectively in the consecutive mode. That said, what works for one person may not make sense to another. Because note-taking is as individual as handwriting, it is best for interpreters to work on creating their own system of notes that combines basic elements: letters, symbols and spacing. The goal of this session is to expose participants to a “menu” of note-taking techniques while offering opportunities for practice to identify and perfect their individual note-taking style.
