Table: Assessment of Simultaneous interpreting

log bookAssessing simultaneous interpreting may be a difficult task. Interpreting is a performance of sorts and there will always be a little bit of a personal opinion involved. To be as objective as possible, we will use this helpful table by Anne Schjoldager and you will be assessing your classmates (anonymously) together with me.

Feel free to download the table in pdf. We will be using it in our classroom.

Tip: print out the Log Book (last two pages) 2 pages per one. You’ll save paper and have the entire log on one page.

Go through the examples and try to evaluate yourself based on a recording of your interpreting! Note down what you can do better and what is your biggest problem.
