Fundamentals of Notetaking

Program Description

Interpreting between two languages is a complex process. It involves continuously using your short-term memory and note-taking skills to jot down crucial information that you are expected to interpret accurately and completely. As professional interpreters, we consciously listen, process, store, and retrieve information in both languages. Having an excellent note-taking system is essential, whether you do the interpretation over the phone, video remote, or face to face.
