Note taking

In conference interpretation, writing delegate’s speech down on paper (or sometimes a tablet computer, such as iPad) using a special notation system. Speech is then interpreted consecutively. Professional conference interpreters are trained to take notes for long periods of time, up to 15-20 minutes. Interpreter notes are for interpreter use only and are not a verbatim record, and should not be quoted or used in court as evidence or in lieu of a transcript.
