The Effective Interpreting Series: Simultaneous Interpreting from English - Study Set

The video's naturally occuring language samples in English, the kind of language heard in the field, combined with the book's expertly crafted exercises helps get inside the SI process to improve interpretations. The follow up process and study questions pinpoint areas that require improvement. Recognizing the types of errors that appear at key points in the SI process, comprehension, transfer, or reformulation, guides students of interpretation to the exact skills that need attention.

Topics include:

  • Consecutive Interpreting
  • Bridging to Simultaneous Interpreting
  • Sources of Error
  • Comprehension
  • Transfer
  • Reformulation
  • 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.
