The program focused on the foundations of professional Conference Interpretation and exposed participants to exercises needed to progress in self-learning, with practical mentorship sessions for prospective interpreters and translators for inclusion in its roster of freelance language service providers.

Following the workshop, participants were evaluated on beginner Consecutive Interpreting practice and Simultaneous Interpreting (SI) for those who had minor exposure to SI, received STIT guidance, and expressed an interest in being evaluated.

After successful assessment, The Beginner’s Edition added 4 new entrants to its trainee list. It is expected that with further mentoring, these new mentees will be included in the roster of freelance language service providers.
