AIIC Greece & Cyprus: Community interpreting as a right/rite of passage Permalink

The Laboratory of Narrative Research and the Laboratory of Translation, Interpreting and Communication, with the support of AIIC Greece-Cyprus will organize an annual symposium in 2018 which will focus on the process of narrativising migrant displacement. In recent years an unprecedented wave of immigrants has been flooding the countries of southern Europe. The problem of communicating their narratives to different state bodies (law enforcement and asylum authorities, courts, schools) has been a major issue for both the immigrants and the host countries. Community interpreting is the only channel through which these people can pass their stories to the host community, at moments that can prove catalytic for their lives and the lives of their families. This symposium intends to explore this channel of communication from different perspectives. In different "rites of passages" - police interrogations, asylum hearings, court proceedings - interpreting gives these people a "right of passage" that will allow them to continue their lives.

AIIC Belgium: The Mindfulness seminar Permalink

Mindfulness is a practice that cultivates a state of active, non-judgemental attention

on the present moment. Mindfulness as we know it today was developed and first

used in the late 1970s at the Stress Reduction Clinic at the University of

Massachusetts Medical School and has since then helped thousands improve their

mental and physical well-being.

In this workshop you will discover how mindfulness can help you, among other


• reduce stress, anxiety, and irritability.

• avoid burn-out and improve your overall health.

• respond as opposed to react to stressful situations so that you will feel calmer

  and more focused.

• improve working memory, attention span and stamina...yes, also in the booth!

• reduce mental chatter to find more inner peace.

• deal better with difficult emotions and feelings.

• and, why not, enjoy life more fully by being more present to it.


Special attention will be given to how stress functions, what its effects are and how

Mindfulness can help you deal with it.

The workshop will be conducted in English and will have a strong experiential

focus. You will learn practical exercises that you will be able to start using

immediately in your - often very busy - life.


The event is open to AIIC Members, Pre-Candidates and Candidates from Belgium, Luxembourg and the Netherlands.

AIIC Belgium € 30,00
AIIC Luxemburg or AIIC Netherlands € 70,00

Know Your Worth: Understanding Marketing and Negotiating for Interpreters Permalink

This two-day seminar with Julia Poger is aimed at any interpreter who wishes to improve relationships with clients and prospects, gain more respect, and negotiate higher fees. 

By examining the mindset underlying the marketing and negotiating tasks that interpreters carry out every day, participants will obtain invaluable tools for marketing their services and negotiating contracts that they may put into practice immediately. 

Various questions will be addressed, such as:

  • What can you do to increase your chances of getting the job once you have targeted the client?
  • What should you avoid saying, or else the client may never hire you – or anyone else?
  • What phrase should always end your conversations with any client?
  • How do you increase your chances of earning what you are worth?

Concepts such as branding, selling, client relationships, pricing, negotiating tricks, and "coopetition" will also be discussed, all illustrated with real-life examples. 

Julia draws on parallels with other – often surprisingly similar – professions, and what lessons we could learn from them. She focuses on the upstream work that must be done by the interpreter before advertising his/her services, as well as on the preparation involved before beginning the process of selling or negotiating a contract.

Participants will be encouraged to take a step back from their own position, and envision the entire client relationship from new perspectives.


Julia Poger, M.A.C.I. (MIIS); ATA; AIIC, started her career as a marketer and negotiator at a young age, developing her selling skills in markets as diverse as newspaper advertising, books, shoes, ideas and, once she received her Master’s Degree in 1987, interpreting services.

Her experience includes building and retaining a wide-ranging client base in the private, institutional, and government markets on both sides of the Atlantic. She has worked at presidential and cabinet levels in two US and one French administration, at ministerial and presidential levels for international organizations, as well as for CEOs from various Fortune 500 Companies. She has trained interpreters in consecutive interpretation, English as a B language, and marketing and negotiating techniques, and has taught and/or examined in schools in six countries. She is a member of the Belgian AIIC Network of Trainers (BANT), co-organizes the Cambridge Conference Interpretation Course (CCIC), and offers consulting services on branding and brand identity.

Practical Information

The event is open to practicing interpreters, and also to graduates from interpreting courses at any university or training center.

Preparation in the 21st Century Permalink

Course description

Right after Lenguas concludes in Mexico City, Darinka Mangino and Maha El-Metwally will be offering the extended face-to-face version of their successful webinar Preparation 2.0.

There is a general understanding among practitioners that preparation is related to higher quality and job satisfaction. The amount of conference material and time available is a key factor affecting the preparation process. Preparing for some assignments could be described as a paradox. Interpreters might be given all the material needed for thorough preparation, though they might receive it very close to the time of the conference. In other cases, interpreters are given sufficient time to prepare but receive very few details on their assignment.

At the same time, several international organizations are moving towards a paperless environment. As such, trainee and practicing conference interpreters need to learn how to prepare for meetings in such an environment. We will look at examples of paperless portals and explore apps you can use to annotate documents or organize your glossary. Another reason for paperless preparation is that interpreters spend a good part of the year on the go. We will look at apps and gadgets that can contribute to making your life easier and more organized. 

The primary objective of this course is to provide interpreters with a preparation method and IT tools that allow them to most effectively use their time and the material available when preparing for a conference assignment. The main course components are:

  • introduce interpreters to the 'SPEAKING' preparation method
  • introduce interpreters to corpus tools for term extraction and Boolean operators for quicker search purposes
  • explore IT tools to annotate documents and organize glossaries
  • review apps and gadgets that can contribute to making an interpreter's life easier and more organized


  • AIIC members: $160
  • Non AIIC Members: $180

Last day for booking your place is December 21st, 2018. To book your place, please send an e-mail to maha@v2a.culturalbridges.co.uk in order to receive the payment instructions.


Ms. Maha El-Metwally is a conference interpreter who works for a wide range of international organizations, including the European Institutions and the United Nations. After an MA in interpreter training from the University of Geneva, she developed a course on technology for interpreters which she successfully offered in the United Kingdom, Taipei, Hong Kong, Panama, Buenos Aires and Cairo. She is a member of AIIC, the Chartered Institute of Linguists (CIoL) and the American Translators Association (ATA). She is also a Board member and member of the Admissions Committee of the Institute of Translation and Interpreting (ITI). She is associated with a number of universities both in the UK and abroad where she offers training and professionalization talks. She also teaches conference interpreting at the University of Surrey.

Ms. Darinka Mangino is a conference and court interpreter.
