Abstract

As some interpreters reproduce speeches that last up to fifteen minutes, they can’t rely on memory alone so they have, so they have to develop skills in note-taking. This suite of videos, integrated into an interactive e-learning resource, gives viewers a clear idea of what interpreters' notes look like, what the symbols used mean, and how interpreters use their notes to cope with the high volume of information they are required to convey from one language into another. The National Network for Interpreting did not design or indeed intend this resource to be used as training material, but rather as an example of how professional interpreters work. These specific note-taking skills are taught in specialised courses at accredited institutions. Please visit the project website for more information on the National Network for Interpreting partner institutions.
