You haven’t forgotten how to interpret, you’re just tired and hungry.
Some of the most unintentionally dirty things to ever come out of my mouth were a result of literal translation.
Don’t worry about waking me up, when I decided to go to medical school I knew I would be called in to the ER at 2:00 in the morning and I knew… oh, wait that’s right, I never went to medical school! I’M NOT A DOCTOR!
I interpreted it perfectly. It just wasn’t funny.
First, voices whispering in the dark. Love the dramatic effect! But, any chance we could keep the interpreters’ light on? Just for the times you want the Deaf audience members, who bought tickets, to understand the dialogue. Even if it’s voices whispering in the dark.
Science Teacher: Why shouldn’t you trust Atoms? Because they make up everything!
Interpreter: (ah! A challenge!)
Science Teacher: Photons have mass… I’ll bet you didn’t even know they were catholic.
Interpreter: (I don’t need this today)
Science Teacher: If a photon checks into a hotel it wont need help with its luggage because it’s traveling light.
Interpreter: (I am filled with hate).
Interpreting for you is my job, doing it well in no way means I agree with you.
