TIPS FOR CONFERENCE SPEAKERS
Dear conference speakers,
If you want the conference delegates to communicate successfully, please note that good conference interpretation is a joint venture of interpreters and speakers. The former must be professional; the latter should not rush with their presentation and are requested to:
- give the interpreters a hard copy of their presentation during registration even if they do not intend to read it through;
- give the interpreters a hard copy of the power point presentation they are going to use as the interpreters’ booth does not offer a good view of the conference hall or the viewing screen;
- speak distinctly and clearly;
- explain the acronyms and abbreviations when first used even if they seem obvious to the speaker.
