New technologies for interpreters are transforming our profession, opening new horizons, and bringing progress. Notwithstanding, they create new challenges and raise several questions. This training session aims to offer an insight into the different platforms and will provide hands-on demonstrations of two platforms currently available on the market.

This one-day training session will be split into two parts.

The morning session will be informative and focused on:

  • Note-taking apps for Consecutive Interpreting
  • Computer-Aided Interpreting (CAI)
  • Bring-your-own-device (BYOD)
  • Over-the-phone interpreting (OPI)
  • Video-remote interpreting systems (VRI)
  • Remote Simultaneous Interpreting (RSI): platforms and requirements

The afternoon session will be very hands-on. James Anderson, Co-founder and President of LINGUALI*, will demo his BYOD platform, and Fardad Zabetian, CEO of KUDO*, will demo his RSI platform. Their presentations will be followed by a debate centered around these platforms.

Since then she has been closely following all technological innovations in the field of conference interpreting and holding seminars for fellow interpreters about the use of tablets and
