Assisting Interpreters with Technical Terms

Abstract: To assist simultaneous interpreters with their work, one needs to find a balance between providing useful information and minimizing distraction. This talk will discuss a simple method for detecting and translating technical terms and a crowdsourced experiment to determine whether the method strikes the right balance for interpreter assistance--without actually using interpreters.
