Rules of note-taking have been defined and modelled in order to be taught during
training of consecutive interpreting. However, not much has been done to find
relevant ways of evaluating the progressive acquisition of such systems and of
note-taking skills. When instructors want to assess an interpretation, it is
generally the quality of the consecutive interpretation and the final notes which
allow them to give feedback and evaluate the performance. Such a product
evaluation of the interpretation is generally made without being able to clearly
distinguish the process of note-taking. Thanks to digital pen technology, trainers
have now the possibility to capture simultaneously the video of the notes being
taken and the audio of the speech, and therefore can provide better advice and
remedial strategies to their students. Such technology is presented in the following
article along with pedagogical suggestions for its use and for training in
consecutive interpreting.
