Artificial Intelligence and the Interpreter Permalink

A thought-provoking exploration of the disruptive power of artificial intelligence in the interpreting industry.

How will artificial intelligence change the interpreting profession? The implications for the market, interpreter training and the delivery of interpreting services could be profound. In this day-long symposium experts in the field will explain how advanced current speech-to-speech translation solutions are, what the challenges are, how AI can support human interpreters, and what we can expect in the future.

A non-profit event for interpreters, researchers, students, journalists, AI/technology enthusiasts and members of the general public with an interest in the subject.

  • The registration fee includes coffee breaks and lunch.
  • This event will be live streamed and recorded.
  • Spaces are limited.

Experience indicates that early enrolment is highly advisable.

This unique annual continuing education course for conference interpreters offers a student-teacher ratio not exceeding 2.5:1. Instruction is centred on training in simultaneous interpretation from speeches delivered by teaching faculty and guest speakers, and from contemporary video sources. General, group and individual performance coaching and evaluation is extensive, systematic, tailored and detailed.

The CCIC’s 27 students will work some 5 hours per day in state-of-the-art 2-person ISO-compliant booths equipped with high resolution screens. A wide range of technical and general subjects (economy, geopolitics, defence, environment, economy, philosophy, history, etc.) will be briefed under authentic conference conditions, including formal UN-format mock meetings and a remote hub configuration. Several tailored in-depth language breakout sessions concentrating on a particular mode of interpretation and/or language pair are also featured.

In addition to the core curriculum, daily specialised modules in a variety of fields (consecutive techniques, B-language strategies, preparation and use of texts, meeting terminology and practice, booth and stress management, marketing and negotiation, interpreting literature, etc.) and briefings on AIIC and the profession are provided. Practical exercises in ‘chuchotage’ are also featured.

We have negotiated advantageous room rates both at the Hilton Cambridge City Centre hotel venue and at nearby Cambridge University Christ’s College (see website FAQ)..

================================================

Course languages are: English, French, German, Italian, Russian and Spanish, according to demand, and tuition is tailored to cover the language pairs requested by students. The language of general instruction is English.

Short Courses for conference interpreters with English B Permalink

Christine Adams and Zoë Hewetson have run successful courses for working interpreters with English B for the past six years and are proposing to run more in 2020.  We provide opportunities for colleagues to work on their B in a practical, supportive environment.
This year’s courses will run from August 24-28, 2020.  They will include: 

  • simultaneous interpreting,
  • consecutive (if requested),
  • tailored feedback from English A course tutors,
  • voice coaching,
  • English enhancement,
  • talks and debates on topical issues,
  • participant speech preparation and delivery.

They will take place in central London.  We could accommodate two different A language groups in that week, with a minimum number of six per group and a maximum of ten.
Please send us an email if you are interested in attending, giving your A language.  We would like to have expressions of interest by March 13, 2020 so we can establish the A language groups. The fees are £1250.00 (covering tuition, not accommodation). 

Do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.
