More than ever, translation and interpreting support are hot topics in hospitals across the United States. The demand for in-person as well as over-the-phone interpretation is surging. In response, new companies, new services, and new resources are popping up left and right.
The recently launched Interpreter's Launch Pad is one such resource. It aims to provide "resources, tips, and a bit of fun to the lives of professional interpreters". The first two issues of their monthly newsletter covered topics such as note-taking skills for consecutive interpreters, technology trends in interpreting, and profiles of successful interpreters.
Subscribers to their newsletter receive a copy of Nataly Kelly's book, Telephone Interpreting. If you're not familiar with the book, it weighs in at 300 pages and covers every imaginable topic and issue around over-the-phone interpretation.
So, head on over to the Launch Pad today to sign-up for their newsletter and grab your free book!
