In his paper ‘The Interpreter as a Performer’ Dr. Boris Naimushin argues that consecutive interpreters need focused training to develop specific performance skills different from linguistic skills and consecutive interpretation techniques. Teaching interpretation students about performing is not like teaching them how to reformulate or take notes. Of course, technical perfection is a given at any professional level, including conference interpretation. However, pretty much like successful solo performers who develop an ability to personally connect with the audience via their music, professional consecutive interpreters should be able to make that personal connection with their client and their audience via their behaviour and their voice developing the ability to do their best in almost any situation.
