WISE (Workshop on Interpreting Skills Exchange) is an intensive practice workshop which operates on a mutually beneficial basis, relying upon the goodwill of those taking part.
This means that as a participant, you will interpret the speeches of other colleagues while also receiving feedback from them. In return, you will give constructive feedback and helpful advice to others, as well as speeches in your native language or a strong active language. WISE is held every summer in Brussels and Valencia.
The WISE workshops are intended for professional conference interpreters who are seeking to improve their interpreting technique, both in consecutive and simultaneous modes. In 2014, the booths catered for were Spanish, English, French, German and Italian, with the same language regime planned for 2015. Furthermore, the workshops place a particular focus on offering the chance to work on a retour, with feedback provided by native colleagues.
