Conférence internationale permanente d'instituts universitaires de traducteurs et interprètes Excellence in T&I training and research

Online platform conference interpreting

Due to the COVID-19 crisis, university teaching around the world has been moved online for a number of months and part of that teaching is likely to remain online. The switch to online teaching has presented trainers with enormous challenges, both technologically and content-wise. In particular, interpreter trainers face unresolved technological issues of delivering simultaneous interpreting training online. In order to address these issues, CIUTI is launching an open competition to encourage academic and other T&I stakeholders to develop an online platform, or to enhance existing platforms, with a view to making single-device remote teaching of simultaneous interpreting possible.
