A Novelty Approach to Note-taking for Interpreters
By Robert Zemser
As a court interpreter, Robert Zemser tries to incorporate technology as much as possible into his work routine. Beyond his devotion to wireless equipment for all court proceedings, he uses his computer typing skills to improve his current method of consecutive interpretation. Having never mastered the art of manual note-taking, he brings a laptop to all court proceedings to capture utterances in Spanish and English. This talk will focus on how he combines a keyboarding skill with sight interpretation to create a form of consecutive interpretation that is fast and effective. The presentation will feature on screen demonstrations, role plays with real court transcripts, and tips on digital note-taking techniques. Audience members will be invited to put their typing skills to the test.
Fee: FREE to NYCT members; $10.00 for non-NYCT members. To be collected at the event either in cash or by check.
