  1. Very nice! Awesome to hear about their demands increasing and them finally going Global! She’s very right when she says people just want it translated rather than the if/how questions. People just naturally think we know how to do everything, but it’s not ALWAYS like that. Thank you for posting this recording and it’s very educational about the interpreting processes!

  2. Excellent! Thank you for making this podcast available and posting it in Linkedin where a great number of interpreters (hopefully) will access it.

  3. Very interesting discussion. I am a certified translator English x Portuguese living in Brazil and also eventually work as an interpreter. The interpretation market in Brazil is still very much face to face – both for consecutive and simultaneous interpretation, but Barry’s comments relative the trends and new platforms (and their challenges for interpreters) was quite fascinating.
    Thanks! Maura Spielmann
