TerpTopics: WELCOME - Introduction to ASL and Sign Language Interpreting simultaneous interpretation Archives - Translation Excellence Simultaneous interpretation is a relatively recent invention, requiring the use of sophisticated equipment and a high level of advanced education in specific techniques and methods. Because the ability to interpret simultaneously is considered to be both demanding and difficult, it is surprising if not implausible to imagine someone with natural skill interpreting in this way… Welcome to the final article in our six-part series on simultaneous interpretation!

The amazing brains of the real-time interpreters One morning this summer I paid a visit to the sole United Nations agency in London. The headquarters of the International Maritime Organization (IMO) sits on the southern bank of the Thames, a short distance upstream from the Houses of Parliament. As I approached, I saw that a ship’s prow, sculpted in metal, was grafted like a nose to the ground floor of this otherwise bland building. Inside I met a dozen or so mostly female IMO translators. They were cheerful and chatty and better dressed than you might imagine for people who are often heard but rarely seen. I walked upstairs to a glass-fronted booth, where I prepared to witness something both absolutely remarkable and utterly routine. Let’s unpick what she did that morning and itemise its components. As the delegate spoke, Pinkney had to make sense of a message composed in one language while simultaneously constructing and articulating the same message in another tongue. Intriguing region Humorous pitfalls Some speakers talk too fast.

Why consecutive learning is important? | A Word In Your Ear “Although I’m retired from the Commission now I still do a bit of training now and again and I sometimes get asked why students of conference interpreting on university interpretation courses spend so much of their time learning how to do consecutive interpreting when practically all the work they’ll do later as a conference interpreter- assuming they get that far- will consist of simultaneous interpreting..the difference as I’m sure most of you know being that consecutive (as the name suggests) is done after the speech, using among other things your memory and the notes you have taken during the speech to be interpreted whereas simultaneous is done in a soundproofed booth wearing head-phones while the speaker is talking..which is probably how most laymen see interpreters and also how most professional interpreters might see themselves. Should students learn CONS before SIM? Dick Fleming is a former staff conference interpreter and trainer at the European Commission, Brussels. Like this:

Simultaneous Interpretation: Practice makes perfect... but where do I find the speeches? by Michelle Hof, AIB The other day, a colleague mentioned to me that she wanted to practice her interpreting and asked me if I could recommend any good speech websites. After sharing with her my current favourites, it occurred to me that there might be other professional interpreters out there with the same question. After all, many of us are looking to add a new language, upgrade to a retour, or just keep our skills fresh in periods of less work (and have realized that the technique of conducting random searches on YouTube in the hopes of stumbling upon a good speech has its limitations). 1. In this first category, we have of course the SCIC’s Speech Repository. the speeches that the private version does, but it’s sure to be a big hit all the same. The second on this list has to be Speechpool. I highly recommend you do. practice. 2. In this second category, we have portals such as the UN’s Web TV, the European Parliament’s EP Live and the European Commission’s Conference Webcast Portal.

What is Glioblastoma Multiforme (GBM) & EGFRvIII? A brain tumor is the growth of abnormal cells in the tissues of the brain. Although many growths in the brain are called brain tumors, not all are cancerous; in this case, they are called “benign.” When a brain tumor is classified as “malignant,” it is brain cancer. Malignant tumors grow and spread aggressively, overpowering healthy cells by consuming their space, blood and nutrients. Glioblastoma multiforme, also called grade IV astrocytoma or glioblastoma (GB), is the most common and most aggressive malignant primary brain tumor. Glioblastoma Symptoms Glioblastoma can develop in any area of the brain. Glioblastoma Diagnosis & Treatments Glioblastoma is usually diagnosed by a neurologist who will review medical history and perform a thorough exam, which includes checking vision, hearing, balance, coordination and reflexes. Clinical Trials for Glioblastoma Multiforme There are also investigational treatments for glioblastoma multiforme being evaluated in clinical trials.

VI Practice exercises for SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETING The exercises below are designed to further skills in specific areas of interpretation technique, some may argue that in doing this we encourage inaccurate interpreting, however, I remind you that the goal here is not accuracy or fidelity but the activation that skill required to perform the exercise (that skill being one of the component parts of interpretation). Having mastered each of the component parts of interpretation we can later combine them as single package. The exercises I suggest below do not cover all of what might be held to be the component elements of the skill of simultaneous interpreting. Delivery General Knowledge WHY ?
