About this site

Back to menus

This site is meant as a compilation of material and links that can be of direct practical help to trainee conference intepreters and their trainers.

Very few students of conference interpreting know what their colleagues in other schools are doing and the few materials available are publicised by word of mouth only... this is arbitrary, inefficient and a great shame as many people are simply unaware of what is out there.



This site is an attempt to fill a gap and help people to train more effectively. It aims to complement, not duplicate, what is already available in other places. Where material is already available elsewhere you will find a link to it.

Please note that much of the site is made up of links to other sites.....if content is not part of the ITR site then a new window will open and the URL address will no longer begin .

A number of published texts have been reproduced here with permission from publishers. Others without. (Permission is required for excerpts of more than 400 words). The idea is to bring some of the more useful literature on interpreting to a wider audience, namely to student interpreters, who are not generally encouraged to read as part of their courses. Any author who would like to volunteer extracts of their work, which is of direct practical use for students is invited to send it to the address below. Any author who wants their work removed from this site should also contact us and it will be removed.

This site is an Amazon Associate - meaning that if you follow a link from this site to an Amazon page, and purchase a book there the webmaster receives a (very) small commission.

If you have come across anything in the internet that has been useful to you or your colleagues in learning to interpret or training interpreters then please send in the link.... .........likewise if you are a trainer and you have ideas that you know work well with your students then please write them down and send them in so that others can benefit from your experience. As a colleague once wrote,


there is much knowledge out there that is not in writing


.... and that is a shame because it is not available to all those who could benefit from it.
