Billl, I get really excited by this time when I think of those pure literature academic meetings. I want to interprete from Chinese to English for one of them. Do you know who hold those meetings, and if I can get a chance to do it, if my friends, including my boyfriend are willing to help me with their utmost efforts? I can speak in a literature style of English. I believe my pronunciation is good, my voice also good, when it is delivered through a microphone system. I want it so much. People who attend it will wear headphones to choose their favorable language, and interpreters speak to some complicated machines in some private rooms, each of which deals with one language. Who hold those meetings? Will they listen to my friends, if I do have the ability? Will they give me a chance to be tested verbally?
To study for two years about translation skills is really tedious. However I will get a master degree in literature, I hope after half a year. When I read the information about a professor's experience, I learned that she did some interpretation related to literature after she got a phd degree in literature comparison. I do not think I can get
an opportunity to use a microphone and a private room above all now, but I will try getting it. Perhaps I will start from the very beginning.
Thank you, Billl.
Hi Billl, do you think I am capable of doing oral interpretation in a fancy scale? The ability to paraphrase in a good style of English is all one needs, in terms of doing a great performance of interpretation. Two years of learning about how does not help at all, I think, though a diploma is almost a requirement. I believe in miracles. Perhaps I was wrong?
Hi there! Really value your input in the 'transhumanist' thread. Didn't see anyone talking about those kind of things on here so started the discussion. I guess I'm more of textual ranter and idealist than a philosopher though.
Really? How can you tell through all the hair? Did you make those yourself?
Hey Billl, love the headphones, are they sennheisers?
Would you like to vote in the Short Story Competition?
Actually Billl, I don't have a cellar, but I am quite happy to build one... Hahaha
