In this time of disruption to traditional conferences, remote interpreting is coming to the forefront as a viable alternative. In cooperation with the Union of Interpreters and Translators in the Czech Republic (JTP), I am happy to announce this new edition of my Remote Interpreting Platforms Training. It was supposed to take place in Prague but due to the Coronavirus, it will be offered online.  

This practical training is a must for any conference interpreter who is considering offering their service remotely. It aims to:

  • introduce different models of remote interpreting and offer participants the opportunity to test drive them
  • raise awareness of guidelines of professional associations
  • discuss factors to take into consideration before offering this service

Participation Fee: 

JTP Members: 80 EUR or 2000 Kč

Regular Rate: 100 EUR or 2500 Kč
