For most, if not all assignments, interpreters receive documents electronically. They sign contracts and send invoices electronically. In addition, they spend a good part of the year on the go and they are expected to maintain communication with clients irrespective of where they are. As a result, they need a mobile office. Technology can help make an interpreter’s life easier.

This webinar aims to introduce participants to:

  • preparing for assignments efficiently and paperlessly
  • preparing and organizing glossaries
  • useful apps and gadgets
