Spanish C course Rio de Janeiro

with Darinka Mangino 

Dear interpreters,

Spanish is the official language of over 20 countries and is spoken by 400 million people around the globe.  Interpreters looking to add up a language to their Cs can benefit from the fact that international organizations use Spanish as one of their official and working languages and offer competitive examinations where Spanish C is required. In the private market, Spanish is widely used for business and in entertainment.

This one-day course is aimed to present participants an opportunity to hone their interpreting skills from Spanish into their A or B languages.  This training has an emphasis in Spanish varieties used in Latin America.


  • Past & present of the Spanish language
  • World Tour around the regional variations of Spanish
  • Institutional & technical Spanish
  • Main roadblocks when interpreting from Spanish C (grammatical, cultural, metalinguistic)
  • Register variation drills
  • Interpreting drills from Spanish into your A or B language
  • Useful resources & tips for keeping your Spanish C up to speed when living in a non-Spanish speaking country
  • Language specific & general feedback

Language & Feedback: This course will be delivered in Spanish.  The trainer will provide feedback in the following language specific combinations: Spanish into English, Spanish into French. Feedback for other language combinations will be general and non-language specific. If more speakers of your language join the course peer feedback will be used. Participants should note that this course has a focus on analyzing the inherent roadblocks that Spanish poses and the decision process related to solving interpreting problems.

She holds a Master in Advanced Studies for Interpreting Trainers from Universite de Geneve, Switzerland; a PGC in Forensic Linguistics from Aston University, United Kingdom and a University Degree in Conference Interpreting from Instituto Superior de Interpretes y Traductores, Mexico City.
