Chapter 13Non-verbals in dialogue interpreter education
Improving student interpreters’ visual literacy and raising awareness of its impact on interpreting performance
Dialogue interpreter education has paid little attention to the importance of non-verbal clues in interaction. This paper reports on an experiment at Ghent University where student interpreters were asked to perform a set of activities aiming at raising awareness of the importance of non-verbal behaviour for the co-construction of meaning in interpreter-mediated interaction. At the end of the experiment the students reported that they had become more aware of the impact of their own and others’ non-verbal clues in the co-construction of meaning during interaction.
