Have you ever seen your simultaneous interpreting delivery displayed in real time on a giant screen for thousands of people? Some lucky interpreters have, and they'll tell you that it's both tricky and fascinating. In this session, you'll learn how this system works, what it's recommended for, and what strategies interpreters should use to make sure their delivery comes through.
