VIC200208 : Refining Interpreting Skills

One-day Workshop

Saturday 8 February 2020    10:00 am - 4:00 pm  AEDT

This one-day workshop is aimed at community interpreters who wish to refine their interpreting skills by practising a variety of interpreting modes, including chuchotage, dialogue interpreting, consecutive interpreting and sight translation. A variety of topic areas will be covered, for instance healthcare, social welfare, education, the environment and business.

Participants will interpret speaker presentations, dialogues and last-minute documents. The training will also focus on note-taking skills and aspects of delivery that contribute to the quality of rendition, such as voice modulation, diction, stress and intonation.

PD Level - Intermediate  :  20 points  :  Logbook Section 1.4


Margot Seligmann has been working as a conference interpreter, both nationally and internationally, for over 30 years and is a lecturer and trainer in conference interpreting and community interpreting at Western Sydney University and the University of New South Wales. She has completed a Master of Arts (Interpreting & Translation) with Distinction at Western Sydney University, a Graduate Diploma in International Studies with Distinction at the University of Technology, Sydney, and a three-year specialised simultaneous interpreting training course at Macquarie University.

Margot has extensive experience as a simultaneous and consecutive conference interpreter in Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Europe, interpreting at international conferences from 1986 up until the present in a large variety of specialist fields, ranging in topics from science to politics. As part of her career, she has interpreted for political leaders, such as German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the G-20 Finance Ministers.

Identifying the need for and lack of professional training, accreditation and qualification in the mode of simultaneous interpreting in Australia, Margot wrote her dissertation on the topic of ‘Australia’s Position in the International Conference Interpreting Market’ and also undertook a comparative study of worldwide conference interpreting courses as part of the development of a Master of Conference Interpreting degree course.
