As the demand for virtual interpreting services rose, many interpreters in community settings have been pushed into providing interpreting services in same (or similar) settings, but with a new added challenge, a need to provide services in the simultaneous mode of interpreting.

Although the codes of ethics that guide and direct our practice discourage engaging in interpreting settings, modes, or modalities for which we are ill prepared, stakeholder expectations and market needs have pushed many of us to attempt simultaneous interpreting using our instinct and consecutive skills to guide our practice.

In this course, participants will have an opportunity to unpack and explore the various elements of simultaneous interpreting from beginning to end. Participants will focus on identifying areas in which their technique can improve to enhance overall performance.

For this training, the following is mandatory:

  • Attendance online
  • Computer audio turned on
  • Headset with microphone
  • Camera turned on at all time 

Homework is required for the successful completion of the course.
