Jul 24, 2017 17:48 simultaneous interpretation interpreting
Last week I did simultaneous English-Chinese interpretation for the first time. It was two days assignment. On the first day, I thought I did OK. But next day I covered only 60% or less. I was lucky because in simultaneous part, I translated only from English to Chinese. If it was the opposite, it must have been more difficult, haha. This job made me find out that if it was consecutive, I could have managed English-Chinese somehow. But for simultaneous, my skill in both English and Chinese are far from sufficient. No matter what, that was a new challenge for me that made me excited. It’s always nice to have challenges, they tell us how far we have come and how far to go.
