Medical Simultaneous Interpreting & Sight Translation

In simultaneous interpretation, the interpreter listens in a source language and speaks in the target language at the same time. Build on your experience with consecutive interpretation by exploring the concepts of split attention, self monitoring, d├ęcalage (time difference), coordination, reformulation, and coping techniques. Apply medical simultaneous interpreting techniques in a variety of practice situations with specific medical terminology. End goal is to develop professional interpreting skills and expand vocabulary in order to confidently tackle simultaneous interpreting assignments in the medical field. Students must also pay for a one-time $150 book fee upon entry of first course in the program. Book fee includes workbook and all learning materials needed for all five courses in the certificate program.
