Conference interpreting

Conference interpreting requires sufficient preparation to not only grasp the main concepts pertinent to a given subject area, but to quickly appreciate which details are of significance.

Kyra has substantial experience in conference interpreting. The selection presented here serves to illustrate both the length of that experience and the breadth of topics covered.

Usually working between English and British Sign Language, Kyra has also frequently worked between English and International Sign, and occasionally between spoken French and International Sign and spoken French and British Sign Language.
