Habits of Highley Effective Note-takers  –  Presented by: Ernest Niño-Murcia

Having a reliable note-taking system is key to interpreting effectively in the consecutive mode. That said, what works for one person may not make sense to another. Because note-taking is as individual as handwriting, it is best for interpreters to work on creating their own system of notes that combines basic elements such as letters, symbols and spacing. The goal of this session is to expose participants to actual examples of good note-taking technique while offering opportunities for practice to identify and perfect their individual note-taking style.

Ernest Niño-Murcia is a freelance interpreter and translator based in Des Moines, Iowa. Iowa. Both state and federally certified, he has interpreted legal proceedings and prepared translations, transcriptions, and expert witness reports/testimony for clients in the private and public sectors. As a speaker and trainer, he has presented live and online sessions through organizations including NAJIT, the University of Arizona’s National Center for Interpretation, and the U.S. Department of Justice, among others. Ernest is a member of the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC) and is a Jeopardy! Champion (2012), whose greatest achievement on the show was beating an attorney to the buzzer to answer “co-defendant” in the “11 letter words” category.
