Cognitive Processing Skills in English
Interpret more effectively and energetically. That is the goal of top interpreter educator Carol Patrie, who writes: Interpreters must be able to quickly make sense out of what they see and hear, decide what the message means and how to transfer that message into another language with split-second accuracy. The stronger one’s English skills, the better one interprets. Effective interpreters shift more easily between English and ASL, enjoy translating, consecutive interpreting, and simultaneous interpreting more, and have more satisfied clients.
