What is InterpretimeBank©?
InterpretimeBank© is an online community for professional interpreters and interpreting students who want to improve their skills, add new active or passive languages or keep up with the interpreting techniques during the less busy periods. The aim of the community is to create a network of professional interpreters working worldwide, foster knowledge exchange and interconnect different interpreting disciplines.
The idea of InterpretimeBank© came up in August 2014 to a group of professional interpreters and former classmates, who noticed that it was difficult to practise and get feedback from other qualified interpreters due to the unaffordability of some workshops, the lack of practice groups in their city or town, or the lack of time. They came up with the idea of creating an online community in which all the members could exchange and benefit from the knowledge of other interpreters and which could work as a life-long learning tool. However, now the time has come to move forward and develop InterpretimeBank's own online platform. This is the reason why we are in Kickstarter.
How does it work?
Just for backers: if we get to USD 10000 we will be sending you all a short video with advice and tips on some of the main issues we have encountered while working as freelance interpreters and translators: how to manage your time on hectic days, how to take care of your voice, how to make sure that interpreters don't go crazy during your presentations, how to deal with the fact that, since you work from home, you actually never leave the office...
Which is the difference between basic and premium memberships?
Shipping costs are included in every reward.
Who are we?We are a team of five interpreters who met while studying a Masters in Conference Interpreting in La Laguna, Tenerife. Knowing practice was key to keep up our interpreting skills, soon after graduating we realised that the interpreting world lacked a way to practise without having to physically travel to attend an interpreting practice group, workshop, or course. The solution was simple: creating an online community where interpreters from all over the world could meet up, listen to each other and exchange feedback, all from the comfort of their own homes. And thus InterpretimeBank© was born.
Risks and challenges
The estimated dates in this project have taken into account any possible setbacks or delays we may run into during the creation and testing of the InterpretimeBank platform. If, for any unexpected reason, we have to delay the launch, we will keep our backers informed and offer them to cancel their pledges if they wish to do so.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
