Next Wednesday, March 12 at 12 noon New York time, Eve Bodeux and I will host a free Speaking of Translation conference call, on the topic “Speaking of Interpreting.” We’re crossing the aisle to interview two of the most dynamic interpreters in the business today: InterpretAmerica Co-Presidents Katharine Allen and Barry Slaughter Olsen. Katharine and Barry will give us their insights on the current status of the interpreting profession, what’s coming on the horizon (new developments in remote interpreting, where will we find interpreters for minority languages?), and their tips for new interpreters wanting to break into the industry. Don’t miss it! The live call is limited to 100 callers, but we’ll post a recording afterward.
Here’s the live call access information.
In addition, I had a burst of energy this morning and reorganized the Speaking of Translation recordings, so that each one has its own page. You can listen and learn about the following topics in our archive:
