Interpreting 1 with Daria Kazakova

This is the first of 3 podcasts dedicated to interpreters and interpreting, and we start off with Daria Kazakova, a Russian Interpreter with extensive experience as a conference interpreter.  In fact, Daria shares such great insights and information that the interview ran on for over an hour, so I have divided it into 2 separate podcasts, of which this is the first.

I have now recorded all three sessions (two with Daria and one with Robert) and I really think they are really worth listening to if you are interested in working in the field of interpreting – please let me know what you think!

Below I list some of the contacts mentioned by Daria in the show, together with her comments:

JULIA POGER, AIIC Cambridge Conference Interpretation Course Director, world-class conference interpreter.

ANDREW CLIFFORD, Professional Development Series in Conference Interpreting, Director. York University, Glendon College.
Andrew’s blog might also be of interest to beginners:

DR. LYNN VISSON, a now retired UN interpreter,
I attended a handful of Lynn’s workshops back in Moscow, and I’ve been very proud and honored to be Lynn’s student at Glendon.

All the best!
