What is the difference between translating and interpretating? And how does consecutive interpretation work? How about simultaneous interpretation? My colleagues at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey show us that you need more than words to translate and interpret.
A microphone gaffe, sometimes referred to as an open microphone (or open mic, for short), occurs when the microphone is turned on and the interpreter is unaware that his or her remarks are being broadcast.
