French-English Simultaneous Interpreting

Simultaneous interpreting is the preferred mode of communication at numerous multilingual events because it saves time and allows for linguistic transference of information into multiple languages at once. In this 80-contact hour professional program taught by experienced conference interpreters, begin the process of learning how to interpret in various modes—from French into English and English into French—at events ranging from large conferences to smaller corporate ones. Practice intensively in simultaneous mode, and accessorily in long and short consecutive—with and without note-taking—and whisper (escort) interpretation. The skills acquired in this program may also be used in court, medical, and community interpreting contexts. Learn about the various conference interpreting settings, interpreting equipment, commonly used terminology, resources available to interpreters—and, a whole host of other aspects of the exciting and rewarding career as a conference interpreter.
