Interpreting Suite

Our purpose-built Interpreting Suite provides students with state-of-the-art facilities for training in simultaneous and consecutive interpreting, using specialist Televic interpreting equipment.

The Harding Space Interpreting Suite

The facilities have been developed specifically for interpreter training, including Televic’s award-winning Interpreter Desk, delegate units with headphones and microphones, a table camera to stream and record delegate/conference speeches, and booth cameras to record interpreting performance.

The Suite provides eight interpreting booths, each of which seats two students, allowing them to work side-by-side as interpreters and recreate a real-world interpreting experience. 

As well as accommodating 16 delegate positions within the Suite itself, it is connected to the Law Moot Room next door which has been fitted with audience participation equipment, giving students an opportunity to interpret meetings.


The suite will be used by students on our new English-Chinese Interpreting with Translation MA programme (from September 2018), as well as students on a range of other modules within our undergraduate Modern Languages programmes.
