I am Dr Jonathan Downie. I am a consultant interpreter, which means that as well as being a conference and business interpreter between English and French, I build interpreting teams and work closely with AV suppliers. I can also give advice on creating effective international events.
I am based in Edinburgh but have travelled around the UK and Europe for you.
Right now, I am working on my second book, which talks about the future of interpreting given the rise in AI and I have a new free course, which helps event managers save time and money on interpreting. You can get that for free here: http://bit.ly/buying-1nt
I have two big challenges:
- To become the preferred supplier for event management companies and event organisers who regularly organise international events and
- To grow awareness about my free course and all the tools it includes.
Happy for any feedback and help. And I am always happy to answer people’s queries about sourcing interpreters, briefing them, avoiding fakes and training speakers to behave themselves!
