Hi there! I’m currently completing my first year of training to become a professional interpreter — a pending subject I’ve had for so long is now becoming a dream come true. I love interpreting as much as translating, but when I’m not actually doing it and I start analyzing carefully what it entails to be a good interpreter I sometimes panic. Your brain is one of your biggest assets and allies, but it can also become your worst enemy. If you start overthinking it, your own thoughts can get in the way of the message the speaker is conveying and you are trying to get across in the target language. So many times, you should simply relax and worry about one utterance at a time.

Happy interpreting!

Send this card to your fellow interpreters to support them on their amazing job and remind them to keep relaxed.
