Interpretation Coaching

As a trained, qualified and seasoned professional interpreter, I provide individual coaching services for interpreters of all levels. Coaching sessions are an investment in personnel and involve observation in meetings and then debrief sessions. There is nothing quite like the work that we do as interpreters. There are moments where all the elements are in sync, our memory is in great shape and our vocabulary just flows, and there are also moments where we forget words, we are easily flustered by the environment and we lose control of the flow of communication. It is important to acknowledge all of these experiences and there is no better way to improve than through feedback from real world situations Coaching will involve observation, evaluation and conversation, skill review and suggestions for further learning and application of skill sets.
