Freelancing as an OPI and Webcast Interpreter – Part I: Over-The-Phone Interpretation

ATA Webinar SeriesOn January 25th, 2012, I had the opportunity to present a webinar for the ATA Webinar Series: Freelancing as an OPI and Webcast Interpreter. I was happy to have about 70 curious participants, eager to know about emerging technologies in interpretation and if webcast interpretation was really for them.

During the one-hour presentation, we covered a lot of ground and discussed the following topics for both OPI (Over-the-Phone Interpretation) and Webcast Interpretation, two modes of interpretation where interpreters work at home, in a quiet environment. This post is about OPI. You can read about Webcast Interpreting here.
