What you'll learn

This webinar is the first of two parts seeking to give working interpreters (both trainees and qualified) confidence and practical techniques for translating into spoken English. 

We have been talking most of our lives so why does it often seem so scary? Clare will share some of her techniques developed from her creative writing life to assist us in reducing anxiety around voiceover jobs.

You’ll have a chance to try out these techniques by interpreting a signed video clip into English.

Clare will also discuss how thinking about English – and how it is used in its aural form – can assist us in our voiceover.

Learning Outcomes:

By the end of the webinar the learner should:

  • Have an understanding of techniques to improve spoken English
  • Be assisted to improve their confidence in voiceover
  • Understand classic storytelling structure and features and how they can be used to enhance our voiceover.

If you enjoy this, you’ll certainly benefit from the recording of Clare’s follow up webinar:

Telling the Story – developing advanced skills in BSL to English interpreting
