Abstract Memory is an important component of both Consecutive and Simultaneous Interpreting. There are not many studies focusing on memory and consecutive interpreting, and as Gile’s Efforts Model was devised specifically for interpreting this study aims at revisiting Gile’s Efforts Model, reviewing the consecutive interpreting process and defining the tasks carried out during the process, their impact on memory and the necessary skills to perform them. The role of notes during the consecutive interpreting process and their repercussion on memory processes are also reviewed. The author also wished to study how the identification of skills could have a role to play in interpreter training and provide suggestions for memory training exercises applied to Consecutive Interpreting. The exercises are taken from the literature as well as from the author’s pedagogical practice. Hence, it is important to note that such exercises are mere suggestions and should be empirically tested.
Keywords Short-term memory, long-term memory, working memory, consecutive interpreting, cognitive tags.
