Certificate in Basic Business Interpreting and Document Writing

This certificate program is designed to help learners develop the basic business interpreting and translation skills necessary in practical business settings. The courses included in this program offer learners the chance to acquire basic consecutive interpreting (CI) skills and document writing techniques, as well as note-taking, listening and speaking skills. We will also cover retention techniques for basic interpreting in various scenarios (such as presentations and meetings) and work on overcoming anxieties related to interpreting in front of a large audience.

Upon completion of this certificate program, you should be able to feel confident in the varied aspects of basic interpreting and document writing.

Note: Courses with the same course number suffixed with a dash and semester/course code are identical. (E.g. REI102-FA and REI102-SP, and IBP101 and IBP101-S are identical.) More than one of these courses may not be used toward a certificate.
