To raise the profile of interpreting, Barry Olsen, co-President (with Katharine Allen) of InterpretAmerica and Co-President of InterpretAmerica, LLC, produced a video on WIRED about conference interpreting.
The video was launched on June 24, 2019 and has gone viral with more than 50,000 views in just two hours. As of today, it has more than half a million hits.x
Narrated by Olsen and also featuring seasoned conference interpreters Katty Kauffman and Adnane Ettayebi, the video discusses details (how interpreters take notes during rapid-fire exchanges, do they interpret insults verbatim, Chuchotage, Décalage, and so on) that many in the general public may not be aware of.
“Language can be a stuffy, boring subject, but I think we really hit the right tone on these videos,” Olsen said, promising that if well received, “we may be able to produce additional videos for the general public focusing on other fascinating aspects of our profession.”
Stay tuned, we’ll keep you posted.
