"Bilingual reduced emotional resonance is fairly well-established, but why does it happen? And does that have a knock-on effect for different communities?"
The book "How to get it right when contracting Conference Interpreting services" by Helen Campbell and Lola Bendana is available in hard copy now.
 
We offer free hard copies to educational institutions, clients, government organizations and those who can have an impact educating the public and advocating on the importance of quality interpreting. 
 
The authors would like to thank the following expert Conference Interpreters who contributed with this book:
 
Andrew Clifford
Caroline Napier

"Until two years ago, university student Kevin Martens Wong had never even heard of his ancestral tongue, let alone spoken it."
Empowerment Tips
 
Building Unshakable Confidence
 
Do you ever wonder why some people are 'naturally' gifted with confidence? How do some people carry themselves with such charm and make it look so easy? Many people will say they're born with it but I would disagree. Confidence is a skill that can be mastered. Here's How: 
 
The Power of a Smile
A smile is the most common trait of those with magnetic confidence. It pulls people in, allows them to trust you, and make them more attracted to who you are. People that have unshakable confidence are usually have a good time. They are laughing, smiling, and enjoying the world around them which allows them to be more confident in themselves. 
 
Don't Stop Growing
Confidence is synonymous with certainty. Certainty comes from gaining knowledge on a given subject. If you want to become more confident, dive deep into learning all you can about it to gain a natural confidence over it. Once you know master something so well, the confidence will naturally come to you. 
 
The Posture of Confidence
Confidence can be seen from across the room. If someone that has unshakable confidence walks into a room, most people in the room can tell. This is because of the physiology of confidence. You want to make sure you are looking up, your shoulders are back, your chest is up, and your entire body is open. Not only will other people see you as most confident, you will start to feel more confident too! 
 
Embrace Your Differences 
You have a gift. No one can write the way you write. No one can speak the way you speak. You are truly one of a kind. The most confident people in the world are the ones who embrace their differences and use them to their advantages. Embrace the things that make you unique and step into who you authentically are. That creates real confidence. 
 
Surround Yourself With Confident People
Who you surround yourself with is who you will become. If you want to become more confident, you must surround yourself with confident people. Proximity means everything when it comes to developing a new skill. Get around people that have the confidence you want to embody and learn everything. 
 
Confidence is not something you're born with. It is a skill you can master. Put these tools into play every single day and watch as you step into embracing who you are and unlocking your unshakable confidence.

"Followed by lack of awareness for the importance of terminology management and the weak position of terminology professionals"
 
"Knowing more than one language is great for your brain. But what’s the best way to learn? TED’s Open Translation Project volunteers share 7 tips"
 
"Though being able to communicate in more than one tongue has its serious benefits — there are more jobs available to me, I have an easier time when travelling abroad, some studies even say we're smarter — there are struggles. Boy, are there struggles."
