Man Booker Prize Winner Olga Tokarczuk, in translation here by her fellow Man Booker winner Jennifer Croft, describes the relationship between the writer and translator. https://koreanliteraturenow.com/essay/musings/olga-tokarczuk-how-translators-are-saving-world

Calliope Interpreters

Saturday's celebrations to mark the feast of Kalliopi the martyr are a good opportunity for us to celebrate the name behind our network.
In Greek mythology, Calliope (in Ancient Greek "beautiful-voiced") was the Chief of all Muses, the most respected, wise and assertive one. She was the firstborn child of Zeus and Mnemosyne, who was the Titan responsible for memory - one of the most important intellectual gifts possessed by humans (as all interpreters know!).
Calliope is the Muse of Eloquence and Epic Poetry, as well as of music, song and dance. Various artists have depicted the Muse Calliope holding scrolls and manuscripts of Homer's epic poems, as it is said that epic writers invoked the Muses in order to find inspiration for their work. #xl8 #interpreters #1nt #terps #leadership #ConferenceOrganizers #events #eventprofs


Working it.

Calliope member Gisèle Abazon is proud to have been behind the scenes at the 2019 Eurovision Song Contest, helping to make it the most accessible in the event’s history. Thanks to a unique partnership between AIIC Israel and the Institute for Cognitive Accessibility, Gisèle and a team of AIIC colleagues provided a Simultaneous Simplification service, making the event accessible to people with cognitive disabilities. This service was offered alongside interpretation into Israeli Sign Language and audio description for the visually impaired in an effort to reach a wider audience. Stay tuned for more on this groundbreaking endeavour. #1nt #terps #xl8 #ConferenceOrganizers #eventprofs

A unique film: the dialogue is in Haida, a highly endangered indigenous language spoken fluently by only 20 people in Haida Gwaii, off Canada's west coast. Determined to save its language from extinction, the community is also making recordings of local voices and has produced a new dictionary.

Fascinating facts from an anonymous colleague. Can this be purely accidental?

In many Indo-European languages, the word NIGHT is composed of the letter "N" followed by the sound of the number 8.
Have a look at a few examples:

PORTUGUESE : noite= n + oito (8)
GERMAN : nacht= n+ acht (8)
SPANISH : noche= n+ ocho (8)
ITALIAN : notte= n+ otto (8)
FRENCH : nuit= n+ huit (8)
DUTCH : nacht = n + acht (8)
SWEDISH : natta = n + aetta (8)
ROMANIAN : noapte = n + opt (8) with a minor variation

Regional languages
WALLOON : nut = n + ût (8)
OCCITAN : nuèch = n + uèch
CATALAN : nit = n + vuit (8) again with a minor variation
GASCON : nueit = n + ueit
PICARD : nuit + n uit (8)
PIEMONTESE : neui = n + eut

But it does not work for

RUSSIAN : Night = Ночь, while Eight = восемь
CZECH : Night = Noc ; while Eight = Osm

MIC (Máster en Interpretación de Conferencias)

La semana pasada en el Máster de Interpretación de Conferencias contamos con la presencia de Jacques Salvador, intérprete freelance de cabina francesa con una larga trayectoria profesional. Jacques trabaja para Naciones Unidas y otros organismos internacionales y su combinación lingüística incluye, además del francés como lengua materna, el inglés, el ruso, el italiano y el español. Ha colaborado con nosotros ofreciendo discursos en francés para el alumnado, evaluando sus interpretaciones e impartiendo un seminario sobre su experiencia en el ámbito institucional. A cambio, aprovechó su visita en el MIC para ayudar a nuestros estudiantes y practicar el español, una de sus lenguas pasivas de trabajo.

Gracias a estas colaboraciones con intérpretes visitantes, el alumnado del MIC tiene la oportunidad de practicar con oradores distintos, recibir feedback por parte de alguien que no les ha escuchado nunca o recibir consejos de un intérprete en activo.

Además, su visita fue de lo más inspiradora. Jacques es ciego y nos enseñó las herramientas que utiliza para desempeñar su profesión. Una prueba más de que la interpretación no tiene fronteras y con pasión, práctica y voluntad, todo es posible.
Si quieres conocer un poco más a Jacques Salvador puedes ver el vídeo que hemos colgado en nuestro canal de YouTube.
