Raising the Profile of Interpreting in the Shadow of Speech Translation. UTICamp-2020

Speaker: Jonathan Downie, Consultant and conference interpreter

At a time when every major technology company is trying to replace human interpreters it might seem like the day of human interpreters is over. Yet, the very globalisation and hunger for information quickly has created opportunities to raise the profile of human interpreters that have never been seen before. From leveraging the power of client magazines to working with national government agencies to educate clients as to how to best work with interpreters, this presentation will go through the key approaches and techniques we need to ensure that professional human interpreters are held in such high esteem that computerised solutions are seen as a poor substitute.
