It’s time for another book review! This latest one has been published in the May issue of Communicate!, AIIC’s webzine. In this review, I tell readers about Andrew Gillies’ latest interpreter training textbook, which came out in April of this year. It’s called Conference Interpreting: A Short Course (Routledge, 2019), and if you want to find out more, then click on the link below to read on.
Consecutive Interpreting: A Short Course — a new textbook by Andrew Gillies
… interpreter trainers will find in Consecutive Interpreting: A Short Course a “one-stop shop”, a handy compendium of the various facets of consecutive interpreting that they can use to structure their curriculum, plan their classes, and organise their students’ practice.
Yes, the Interpreter Diaries blog has been dormant of late, but I still contribute the occasional article for the blogs run by AIB (where I am a partner) and AIIC (my professional association). My latest offering, over at the AIB blog, is a review of Andrew Gillies’ excellent textbook Note-Taking for Conference Interpreting: A Short Course, which has recently been released in a second edition. Whether you are a student of interpreting, an interpreter trainer, or just someone who has been wondering how to improve your note-taking skills, I encourage you to go check it out!
Back to school, back to the interpreting textbooks (but this time, with a twist!)
– book review on the AIB blog
A few weeks ago, I gave a talk as part of DG Interpretation’s Universities Conference in Brussels, which was held on the theme “Modern Learning Times, New Learning Needs”. Now, the transcript of that talk has been posted on the blog run by the interpreter group AIB, of which I am a member. You’ll find it here, together with a link to the conference proceedings and recorded webstream:
