Foundations of Interpreting Seminar Series

This widely acclaimed seminar series focuses on components of the Integrated Model of Interpreting in a low-stress, highly interactive environment.

Participants will learn how to convey equivalent messages by working through graduated texts and activities beginning in consecutive mode in earlier modules and moving to simultaneous modes of interpreting in later modules.

Working on skills in small groups, such as text analysis, back translations and collaborative interpreting, participants develop tools for understanding and improving their own processes. Participants will also develop the language necessary to discuss the interpreting task using non-evaluative, non-judgmental language with each other and integrate strategies for continuing their own improvement.
