Conference interpretation is a highly attractive, but simultaneously difficult and demanding profession which requires very specific preparation. Our greatest passion is training conference interpreters. It is based on 14 years experience of teaching conference interpretation techniques and on the knowledge acquired as teachers and working professional interpreters.
Only professional interpreters with teaching experience who are native in the different languages with which we work give classes at TamTán.
Our training offer consists of 3 kinds of course:
Master Courses for Students
With TamTán’s Master Course we recoup the classical concept of teaching in which the teacher tutors, attends and feeds the learning needs of his/her students.
The Master Course is our ideal in training interpretation students. It has to date been tried out by dozens of foreign students who have obtained a profound knowledge of consecutive and simultaneous translation techniques and increased their knowledge of Spanish language and culture with us in Madrid.
In spite of its classical vocation, this training concept is committed to innovation and continual improvement and we consider it our tailor-made service.
Short-term Specialised Courses
TamTán proposes and designs courses with universities that have a department of translation and interpretation.
The Autonomous University of Madrid UAM recognises and offers two short-term 180 hour courses specialising in simultaneous and consecutive translation that are equivalent to 15 ECTS credits. These courses have been designed by TamTán and fulfil the requisites for the General Foundation of the Autonomous University of Madrid. There is work experience in an official institutions for all students.
