Interpreting in the digital era: How to prosper rather than survive in the new reality

Speaker: Barry Olsen, conference interpreter, general manager of Multilingual at ZipDX, co-president of InterpAmerica

 

Interpreting is at a crossroads. Multilingual interaction is at an all-time high, yet interpreters are nervous about their future. New technologies and new ways of working are changing traditional definitions of what interpreting is and where it is performed. Will new technologies mean a dumbing down of the profession and an undermining of working conditions or will they empower interpreters to offer their services in new ways and with greater added value? The answer to that question will depend largely on how individual interpreters respond to the accelerating pace of digital disruption and innovation that is affecting every aspect of modern society. More importantly, how do you adapt and thrive in this new environment? Join professor and veteran conference interpreter Barry Slaughter Olsen as he shares his insights on new technologies in interpreting and how you can thrive in this new reality.
