Is this webinar suitable for me?

If you are an interpreting student or a professional interpreter who hasn't done much note-taking before, this webinar is suitable for you.

If you're an experienced interpreter but you need to refresh your memory and review the basics of note-taking, or you were never taught the principles and techniques, this webinar is also for you!

If you regularly do consecutive or have a good grasp of note-taking technique and are looking for advice on advanced consecutive/advanced note-taking, this webinar is NOT suitable.

What will you cover?

Among other things, I'll talk about:

  • how to structure your notes to reflect the structure and logic of the speech
  • symbols - how to develop them, how many you need, how to adapt them
  • how to personalise your notes

What if I can't attend live?

Don't worry, I'll make the replay available for six months.
