  Workshops

The workshop, which we hope will take place in August 2021, is aimed at experienced conference interpreters who work into English and wish to improve their oral skills. It is reserved for colleagues who have already attended at least one of our workshops in the past. As well as the usual types of exercise, it will include at least three new invited speakers on an interesting range of subjects. The actual dates will be announced in January 2021.

We are also offering, as an optional extra, a minibus excursion on the Saturday following the workshop. For planning purposes, we would be grateful for initial - non-binding - indications of interest.

Despite being originally conceived for interpreters, the Edinburgh Workshops have also proved extremely popular amongst translators. Some participants may wish to boost their ability to speak to English clients, while others may just feel they need to re-engage with spoken English and expand their colloquial vocabulary. Whatever your motive, you will find these workshops enjoyable and stimulating.

What others are saying

"The instructors foster an atmosphere that encourages the creative use of the language. The three workshops I attended have significantly added richness to my interpretations. Highly recommended!"

"I especially liked the fact that the teachers tailored the workshop to our needs, based on our requests and most frequent mistakes. I can wholeheartedly recommend them to anyone wishing to brush up their English and receive detailed individual feedback. I definitely plan to return!"
