Experience Sharing

‘What should an interpreter do if someone in the audience interferes with my interpreting?’ ‘How do I respond if a member of the visiting group asks me to accompany them shopping during office hours?’ ‘Would I be at fault if a high-profile event couldn’t start because the interpreter was stuck on a broken down train?’

Those were just some of the many questions raised at many group training sessions at KL.  Participants were from our Post-MA Professional Training (PMPT) course. They were all MA graduates from leading universities in the UK, from Bath and Surrey to Leeds and Durham.  In its fifteenth year, PMPT is designed to add practical skills and expertise to the theoretical understanding of interpreting gained through university degree programmes.
