On Saturday 18 March 2017, a total 14 VGT interpreters and last year students participated in the workshop Team Interpreting in Antwerp. Participants enthusiastically shared experiences and expertise in plenary and group discussions and activities. Although many of the VGT interpreters regularly work together with a colleague on an assignment, there is no established framework or agreement in Flanders on how to get the most out of team interpreting. The workshop gave the interpreters the opportunity to discuss opportunities, methods and challenges on providing the best quality interpretation as a team.
Thank you to all the wonderful and eager participants, it was a pleasure working with you!
