RIDE THE WAVE!
Ride the Wave! is this year's InterpretAmerica 5 theme. The idea? Let's catch the huge wave of change bearing down upon us and ride it rather than getting rolled hard in the surf. Sure, it will be bumpy, we'll get wet, but we'll stay standing.
In our ongoing commitment to help interpreters catch that wave rather than get dunked by it, we will be highlighting a new technology that conference interpreters will likely be seeing soon: Hearing HotspotTM
In 2013, Interpreters on every continent (except Antarctica) joined us for our first live webcast from InterpretAmerica 4 in Reston, Virginia, just outside of Washington, D.C. It was an experiment that helped us expand our reach and allowed us to connect interpreters from around the globe with our one-of-a-kind programming. Several of the sessions from that event can be seen on our Videos page.
As we have ramped up to this year’s Summit, interest in the topics we will be addressing and requests to webcast our content live again this year have been pouring in from interpreters around the world. This is why we are excited to announce that all plenary sessions from the 5th InterpretAmerica Summit on June 12 and 13 will be streamed live over the internet. And in true InterpretAmerica fashion, we’ve partnered with an innovative new company to do it.
