Some comments received:
  •  Cris did a nice job showing the diversity of tech tools easily available through Apps that can be used to interpret in any setting and for teaching interpreters. 
  • Very interesting topic, very helpful with all this technology nowadays.
  • Wow, now I have lots of homework. I really enjoyed this, and will have an interesting time exploring all of the tools and resources. 

  • Excellent value. Although I was familiar with many of the apps, there was enough that I had no exposure to that the webinar turned out to be quite valuable. It was quite extensive. Thank you!



Traditionally, we have only heard of translation tools. With the rapid developments in the interpretation industry, we can and should be exploring technology that interpreters can use to train and hone their craft. You'll learn how to get to the next level in public speaking, measuring voice quality, reading texts out loud, and more.

Learning objectives

After attending this webinar, participants should be able to:

  • Explain how audio book-type apps can prepare interpreters for assignments
  • Discuss how a simple wifi based app can mimic a receiver and transmitter
  • Describe how interpreters can use technology to organize glossaries
  • Identify tools to help interpreters improve public speaking skills, including video feedback
