New issue of AIIC webzine

Conference interpreting has grown and diversified but simple truths remain: interpreting is interpreting and the three main branches of professional activity are inextricably linked. This issue illustrates the commonalities.

AIIC Staff Interpreters: Reaching out, moving on together
During the 2015 AIIC Assembly week, staff interpreters from around the world discussed conditions in organizations and met with freelance colleagues to examine common challenges.

Daily fees for simultaneous and consecutive interpreting, not just pulled out of the air

How much annual expenses has to cover a self-employed person? A freelancer doesn't just need a pair of headphones and a laptop, but also old-age/retirement provisions and insurances.

What are the similarities between meditation and simultaneous interpretation?

The ability to enter a very peculiar flow/state of consciousness is one of the signs of a professional interpreter. Early in their careers some interpreters treat their craft as an adversarial process.
