Effective interpreting requires a variety of skils. Simultaneous Interpreting from ASL offers a studied, result-producing way to learn about and practice this critical tool for interpretation. Carefully constructed exercises use video-taped ASL source materials with study questions and follow-up designed to build or improve skills.
The topics included in this volume:
- Consecutive Interpreting
- Bridging to Simultaneous Interpreting
- Sources of Error
- Self-Monitoring and Correction
The Effective Interpreting Series is a multi-installment series offering five sets of source materials in English to use with any other language in a language pair, and five sets of source materials in American Sign Language (ASL). The series takes the complex skill of simultaneous interpreting and breaks it down into manageable components, allowing interpreters to increase the individual skills that lead to effective simultaneous interpreting.
