Introduction to Conference Interpreting (Spanish/English)

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

Introduction to Conference Interpreting is a skill-building webinar focusing on the practice of simultaneous interpreting in conference settings. Clear distinctions are drawn between the simultaneous court and conference interpretation modes.

This live, instructor-led webinar contrasts the rigidity of judicial interpretation and the flexibility of simultaneous conference interpretation. Practical tips and exercises such as shadowing, multitasking and paraphrasing are introduced.  Finally, participants will have the opportunity to record themselves interpreting an exercise employing conference-related skills and submit it for individualized feedback from the instructor. 

CEUs have been approved for CA and the ATA. NCI is a pre-approved provider of CEUs for CO, FL, KY,  PA, and TN.

Instructor:  Yvette Citizen, FCCI, CHI, has been a professional court and conference interpreter for more than 20 years. She is a veteran of dozens of conferences covering a host of topics from alternative medicine to government administration to international terrorism.
