ITP 104 - Consecutive Interpreting

Credits: 4
4 Skills Lab Hours

Prerequisites: A grade of “C” or better in ITP 103  
Co-requisites: ASL 210  

This course will futher develop students’ translation and discourse analysis skills by applying them to consecutive interpretation. Consecutive interpretation skills will lead to greater accuracy in simultaneous interpretation, while allowing students to work on a dynamically equivalent message with less time pressure than simultaneous interpreting. Students will learn to assess their own work for accuracy and equivalence, as well as their peers’ work.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Describe the differences between translation, consecutive and simultaneous interpretation.
  2. Apply a variety of processing models (Gish, Cokely, Colonomos, Russell among others) to describe their processing of source material and to identify gaps in their work.
  3. Develop memory skills for short-term recall as they apply to interpreting.
  4. Apply discourse analysis and translation skills to new texts to produce consecutive interpretations.
  5. Construct notes that will help them recall details to be included in the interpretation.
  6. Analyze a work product for strengths and needs, finding positive evidence of equivalence, as well as errors and omissions.
  7. Classify the typology of their interpreting errors.
  8. Revise their work based on analyses, producing a more ideal product for the given text.
  9. Demonstrate the ability to produce an interpretation that conforms to the linguistic, cultural and professional norms of the speaker.
  10. Observe working interpreters in the community in at least two settings.
