Hassle-free audio for remote interpreting and practice

What you'll learn

A brief introduction to what we'll cover in this course

Listening is at the heart of good interpreting.

Hearing your colleague helps you maintain terminology, nail handovers during distance interpreting or provide helpful feedback in remote practice settings.

But how do you make it all work without being an audio engineer? Is it possible to hear the original in your left ear and the interpretation in your right ear?

Getting the right mix: Hassle-free audio for remote interpreting and practice is a FREE mini-course designed for interpreters, trainers and students seeking answers to these questions.

In four short videos, we'll cover:

  • The right set-up for interpreting and listening
  • Multi-channel audio with a mixer
  • Multi-channel audio with Mac software
  • Multi-channel audio with Windows software

After just a few minutes, you'll be well on your way to striking the perfect balance!
