Gillies, Andrew. 2005. Note-taking for consecutive interpreting: a short course (Translation Practices Explained 8). Manchester: St. Jerome. 176 pp.
This book aims to offer future interpreters a step-by-step guide to the skill of note-taking, which forms an essential part of consecutive interpreting. The book is designed to be worked through over a number of months. Each chapter presents a technique, together with examples, tasks and exercises for the reader to complete - true to the motto ‘learning by doing’. The book uses English throughout, explaining how and where to locate material for other languages. It thus constitutes a course which offers student interpreters in any language combination a base on which to build as they develop their skills.
