Here's some challenges and solutions to help students during business interpreter training...


1.Business interpreter training & real world experience

Challenge: simultaneous interpreting for a conference is very demanding

Business interpreter training, Interpreter classesOur business interpreting program teaches different modes of interpretation (simultaneous, consecutive and sight translation) because you are most likely going to rely upon them all during a conference. Not only are you going to be sitting in a booth and having to keep up with the speaker at all times by relying on simultaneous interpreting skills & techniques... but there may also be fliers, and pamphlets to translate as well. This puts a lot of stress on the business interpreter and can be very exhausting at times.

Solution: Business interpreter training classes emphasize real world experience

Not only do our educators have real-world experience, but we encourage our students to gain as much experience as possible during our program. Business interpreter training classes emphasize critical role plays during class, and encourage students to engage in practicums as a highly recommended (though not required) element of training. We believe the best teacher is experience, and encourage you to gain as much of it as possible during your short 7-weeks with us.


2. Business interpreter training for a conference is a skill all on its own

Challenge: interpreting for a conference requires a lot of focus and dedication

We aren't trying to scare you. The reality is, no matter how much you prepare and study- your first conference must be experienced to truly grasp what you are in store for. If there is a questions segment, you must be able to interpret the questions and responses with as much ease as you interpreted the conference. You must be able to think on your feet and retain your focus for the entire duration- which can sometimes run 4 or more hours.

Solution: business interpreter training helps students think outside the box

Becoming a conference interpreter requires a lot from the business interpreter. It cannot be stressed enough that the more training and experience you have, the better. We recommend watching live news segments, and interpreting it as if it were a conference while relaxing at home. This can help improve your simultaneous interpreting skills, as it's harder to anticipate what is being said during a live program like the news. In the same vein, you can try exercises like the cloze test at home that help you learn how to "freestyle" what is being said, by replacing a word you might not know with a similar one that you do.
