AIIC USA : Understanding Marketing and Negotiating for Interpreters Permalink

If you are an interpreter who wishes to improve your relationships with clients and prospects, gain more respect, and negotiate higher fees, then this two-day event is exactly what you need!
 
You will receive two days of tuition, covering essential skills for any interpreter, costing less than one day’s interpreting fee.
 
You will be encouraged to take a step back from your own position, and envision the entire client relationship from new perspectives.

What is important to explore?

We will examine the mindset underlying the marketing and negotiating tasks that you carry out every day, so you may acquire invaluable tools that will have an immediate effect on your bottom line.

We will address questions 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?

We will discuss concepts such as branding, selling, client relationships, pricing, negotiating tricks, and "coopetition," all illustrated with real-life examples.

Julia draws on parallels with other – often surprisingly similar – professions, and what lessons we can learn from them. She focuses on the upstream work and preparation that must be done before the interpreter advertises his/her services or negotiates any contracts.

Cost

Note: This seminar is limited to 18 participants due to its interactive nature.

  • Regular no discount fee: $450
  • Professional Interpreter or Student Fee: $400 (students, members of professional interpreter associations, such as AIIC, NIAC, ATA and ATA chapters, CHICATA, IMEA, Mano a Mano, NAJIT, NCIHC.)
  • At the door: $500 (not guaranteed, subject to availability)

AIIC Training : Interpreting: What We Know and How We Know It Permalink

This seminar - led by Franz Pöchhacker - will provide teachers of interpreting with a state-of-the-art overview of research on interpreting and will cover both general and specific topics of interest, also in relation to professional and training issues. Two courses will be held back to back to allow more trainers to attend.

The seminars will comprise three main parts:

  • 'Decades of development': an overview of the evolution of research on interpreting, i.e. of how our knowledge has come about;
  • Models of interpreting: a look at the most influential ways of conceptualizing interpreting - as interaction and as a cognitive process;
  • Selected topics: the state of the art regarding selected topics of 'basic research' (e.g. 'the interpreter's brain', 'memory in interpreting', 'strategies'), professional issues (e.g. 'quality', 'ethics', 'technology'), and training (e.g. 'aptitude', 'curriculum', 'exercises').

Trainer 

Franz Pöchhacker is Associate Professor of Interpreting Studies at the University of Vienna. He has worked as a conference and media interpreter and published articles and monographs on various domains of interpreting, including the textbook Introducing Interpreting Studies (Routledge, 2004/2016). He is co-editor, with Minhua Liu, of Interpreting: International Journal of Research and Practice in Interpreting, and has edited the Routledge Encyclopedia of Interpreting Studies (Routledge, 2015).

This seminar is designed for interpreter trainers and practicing interpreters with an interest in learning more about interpreting research and training.
