Please note: this is archived course information from 2018 for TRANSLAT 705.


A practice-oriented course that will take students from basic dialogue interpreting skills and short segments of discourse through to unilateral consecutive interpreting in legal, medical and business settings of medium to long segments of discourse.

This course provides in-depth and systematic training in the field of community or public-service interpreting. We will focus on general interpreting skills, including memory training, note-taking and public speaking for interpreters working in legal, medical, business and other social settings.

This very practice-oriented course will be based on dialogues and short discourse passages on related topics. We will use bidirectional interpreting in both liaison and consecutive interpreting modes. Course contents will be aimed at improving interpreting efficiency, information processing capacities and problem-solving strategies. Students will also be introduced to the professional and ethical duties of community interpreters.
