My Workplace

In der Dolmetschkabine / In the interpreting booth

This is the natural habitat of a simultaneous interpreter: my computer, a very important tool, print-outs of presentations and glossaries, the agenda, the interpreting switchboard (to select the language channels – today English and Russian), the headset with an in-built microphone, a notepad and a pen. And water, lots of water. Apart from these items there are some urgently needed things which are not in this picture: sound preparation and nerves of steel.
