Training event with The Interpreting Coach

Boost your skills, confidence and marketability with bespoke training from TIC

Do you want to kickstart your learning in a particular area of interpreting (note-taking, stress management, simultaneous, retour training)? 

With customised, well thought-out, interactive training, you can improve your skills and take steps to make sure you thrive in a high-pressure career.


Training seminars, sessions and short courses are not one size fits all. I will listen carefully to your requirements, and design a course that suits participants' needs and expectations.

I can offer training in the following areas, among others:

  • Analysis and consecutive without notes
  • Note-taking: techniques, practice, and troubleshooting
  • Stress management for interpreters
  • Specialist retour training
  • Self-assessment and effective self-directed learning
  • Giving constructive feedback
  • Training for trainers
  • Exam preparation (EU accreditation tests, university exams)

This type of training is best delivered in person. I am happy to travel within the UK or further afield. I am also willing to consider a webinar format, if it suits the type of training you are looking for. Please contact me to discuss your requirements and obtain a quote.

I'm Sophie Llewellyn Smith, aka The Interpreting Coach.

I'm an EU-accredited conference interpreter and member of AIIC (the International Association of Conference Interpreters) with over 15 years' experience as an interpreter trainer and Trainer of Trainers. 

I am also a qualified Personal Trainer and complementary therapist (aromatherapy, reflexology and sports massage). 

If you're looking for an experienced trainer to organise a seminar, training session or short course, do get in touch.

I travel widely to help groups of students and professional interpreters improve their skills, confidence and marketability. Let me know what you need, and I'll design something just for you.

Look forward to hearing from you soon,
