Specificities of numbers: training materials on dealing with figures in simultaneous interpreting

Master program titleMaîtrise universitaire en interprétation de conférence
Defense date2019
Abstract

Simultaneous interpreters cover the most urgent linguistic needs at conference settings, and often face arduous working conditions, with speakers reading very dense and readily-made statements at an outstanding speed. Figures rank among the elements that that can hinder and even collapse their information processing methods. Numbers are recurrent in human speech and have a pivotal role in supporting the logic and reasoning of a speech. In this work, a series of carefully crafted and organized materials will be offered for an interpreting training context. These training materials consist of short scripts with a high number ratio, as well as a self-correction grid and a questionnaire for students to analyze their performance.
