Process of Interpreting: Tips For Interpreters

The task of the interpreters is rather difficult - act as a mediator between people speaking different languages. Here are some recommendations from Interpretator for interpreters for a successful interpretation assignment:

  • Arrive early enough to get to know people you will work for and get familiar with the environment
  • Multitask: understand the main topic, analyze the information, arranging it in order of importance and then interpret
  • Find a convenient location from which you can see and hear all the participants of the conversation
  • Take a notebook and a pen
  • Switch off your mobile phone
  • Ask again in case you have not grasped the main idea of the sequence
  • Use the “I” form while interpreting
  • Act and behave neutrally without emotional coloring of the information

We wish all our colleagues efficient and smooth interpreting work!
