CATI Webinar –

Speaking While They Speak:

Tips to Enhance Your Simultaneous Interpreting Skills

Presented by Gabriella Siebach

Saturday, December 10th from 11:00am to 12:15pm  EST

During our recent conference our members asked for a performance-based workshop or webinar that would allow them to hone their interpreting skills. So, we provided this webinar to fill that request.

Focus Area: Interpreting


Although the codes of ethics and standards of practice that guide and direct our practice advise us to “[disclose] skill limitations with respect to particular assignments” and to “accurately represent [our]… training and pertinent experience,” stakeholder expectations and market needs have forced many of us to attempt simultaneous interpreting using our instinct and consecutive skills to guide our practice. In this interactive presentation, participants will have an opportunity to explore the mysteries of simultaneous interpreting and learn new ways to continuously develop and enhance their skills in one of the most challenging modes of interpreting.

Learning Objectives:

By the end of this presentation the participants will:

1.    Describe the primary elements of simultaneous interpreting that distinguish this mode from other modes of interpreting;

2.    Identify the area in which their simultaneous interpreting technique needs the most improvement;

3.    Apply one strategy to enhancing and/or developing their simultaneous interpreting skills.


Free for CATI Members

Registered participants will have access to the recording through Jan. 15, 2023.

CEU’s – 1 ATA credit, other credits pending
