Let's "Get Real!"
"What did I get myself into?"
If you've been in the interpreting profession for longer than two jobs, you have probably asked yourself this question...at least once...a day! Interpreting is one of the coolest and craziest professions ever. We go from highs to lows to mind numbing to exciting all in one day. Samantha Terzis explores the field of interpreting in her book Get REAL: A REAL Look at Interpreting. Terzis offers a raw look at interpreters and what we do on the job.
Let's "Get Real!" is a book discussion facilitated by Amy Kroll. This interactive discussion is for working and student interpreters.
By the end of this book discussion, you will be able to...
Identify cycles that entangle and strategies to break free from the cycles
Lists Terzis' "truths" about interpreting
Compare Terzis' exploration of interpreting with you own journey in interpreting
