SKU#: 76

0.3 CEUs PS

“Models are metaphors: ways of seeing one set of behaviors in terms of some other. Of course interpreters are not, never have been, and never will be machines, but if we think of some of the good qualities of efficiently running machines, it is useful to make the analogy. Throughout our brief history we have attempted to better understand what it is we do, and how we should be doing it. As our skills and knowledge grow, we are better able to make appropriate choices.”

In this webcast we will be discussing the most popular models from both a historical and practical application. Which is the best? Which model is the right one? Which model serves our clients and our professionalism the best? So, strike a pose and lets look at the virtual application of these philosophies and see which one looks and functions best.

Leaning Objectives:

  1. Participants will be able to compare/contrast at least two interpreting models used historically in the interpreting profession.
  2. Participants will be able to describe the best model to be used for a specific interpreting situation.
  3. Participants will be able to list concepts specific to at least two interpreting models.
