Роза Кавеноки дала интервью авторам видеоблога о переводе “Перевод жив”. Разговор о профессиональном становлении, преподавании, сложных ситуациях и приятных сюрпризах, России и США, родном языке и многом другом.
Professor Rosa Kavenoki, the head of Russian TI at MIIS, was interviewed by Voice of America. How does one become a translator/interpreter? Why do Americans learn Russian? What is the art of translation/interpretation? Can artificial intelligence replace human professionals? You can listen to a conversation about these (and other) TI-related topics here (in Russian):
Nikolai spent the last couple of years pulling together resources and creating his own production company to produce a musical which he had translated from English into Russian two decades before. All the while remaining active as an interpreter in the field! Hats off.
