If you are concerned that your interpretation is being recorded on video, you should not be interpreting this police interview.
He has to hold his breath while we take the x-ray, so, um…
We got it.
We got it. It’s all worked out. You set up the x-ray out here and go behind the screen. When you are ready say “go” and I tap him on the shoulder, he holds his breath, I run behind the screen, you push the button the machine goes buzz click, I run out and tap him again and he breathes.
And he knows to do all that?
We worked it out while you were loading the plates.
Not our first time.
It’s ok to enjoy the show you are interpreting.
VRI: Clean shirt required, pants optional.
Saturday’s are for sleeping off interpreting from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. in the emergency room.
Interpreting may be the only profession where, “Hey! Want to hear the clicking sound my wrist makes?” is considered flirting.
Appearing calm is a skill.
