Culture and Language Press is thrilled to announce we will have a new title coming out later this year--a great contribution to the field of community interpreting. The working title is:
Strategies for Successful Note-taking in Interpreting
by Katharine Allen, MA
Let's face it: most community interpreters are not effective note-takers. Yet the need to master note-taking is huge, and far too long ignored. Most conference interpreters are well trained in note-taking. Not so community, court and business interpreters.
Your time is coming. In November 2013, an extraordinary book by the Co-President of InterpretAmerica and a national leader in our field will [be published].
Note-taking is a vital skill. This book fills a huge gap and will provide practical guidance and field-tested techniques to help working interpreters improve their note-taking skills.
