Note-taking Techniques for Court Interpreters

Imagine you’re in court and you have to consecutively interpret for someone who is on the witness stand. As the witness speaks, you write down every single word. Unfortunately, the witness speaks faster than you can write. Wouldn’t you rather feel comfortable knowing that you can handle any interpretation assignment because of your strong note-taking skills? In this course, you will learn valuable theoretical information and gain practical skills necessary for note-taking during consecutive interpretation. A larger portion of the unit is dedicated to skill building exercises. If taking the course with instructor evaluation, students must submit 2 interpretation exercises in order to receive a certificate of completion.
