Online via Zoom


This webinar is an introduction to the theory behind note-taking for interpreters and is aimed at consecutive and liaison interpreters wishing to improve their note-taking skills.

You will learn about extracting ideas and what to note. Karoline will share tips for improving your short-term memory and introduce the creation of meaningful abbreviations and symbols. She will also show how to best structure notes on a pad.

Acquiring the knowledge of abbreviations and symbols will enable you to build your own inventory of symbols. 

This is a theoretical webinar without a practical component. It presents interpreters with the foundations and universal principles of note-taking and is not language-specific. The presentation will be about 45 min long and will be followed by 15 min for Q&A. 

To participate you must register by 11.59 pm on Sunday, 24 March. A link to the meeting will be emailed on Monday, 25 March. If you don’t receive it, please check your spam folder before contacting us at

After the event, registered participants will receive the hand-outs from the evening and a link to access the recording (valid for four weeks).

This event is open to everyone and is an MBIE-funded event for entitlement-note holders.
