A terrific class by Daniela Schmidt: a clear-eyed view on INTERPRETING HUMOR (or not) with lots of fun and valuable information on Jokes, Puns, Irony - including the pitfalls and challenges of cultural differences.
Highly recommended. Martitia Palmer - French & Italian Court & Conference Interpreter - Registered with the Judicial Council of CA

Thank you very much! The Interpreting Humor class was very interesting - I enjoyed listening to the Chinese interpreter and learning about his perspective! I would not change anything to the class :)

The Paremiology course has prompted me to do more study of proverbs and their usage. Besides the learning of the word paremiology, I enjoyed much the exchange about equivalents in other cultures and languages, and also the different interpretations of them. Thank you again. I also found the historical background on the proverbs quite enlightening. John Johnston - Thai and Lao Interpreter
Very informational and useful information. Thanks Daniela!

As a returning participant I must say I was extremely satisfied with the class. I think you struck a good balance between lecture and participation. The lessons weren't heavy handed, they were straight forward and simple to follow. I will certainly take the webinars again in two years as part of my continuing education. Thank you for having me in your webinar and I look forward to my next two classes with you. Amir Faress, Farsi&Dari Interpreter
This was my first distance course that I took online. I was very happy with the content, quality and value of the program. Most importantly, I am very happy with the Instructor’s knowledge in this field, and also how the instructor delivered the course. I was a little apprehensive about online delivery, thinking I may not be able to understand the instructor, however, I was pleasantly surprised that the lines were clear of static, and everything was comprehensible. (...) Overall, I learned a lot, as the subject matter was very interesting. I like to thank the instructor for all of her effort in whatever it took to deliver this course using distance learning.
Edward Baitoo, Farsi and Assyrian Interpreter
I found the topics, course material and examples you used very interesting and pertinent to the interpreting profession.
Hennie Woods, Dutch Interpreter
Over the years, I have taken several instructor-led and non-instructor-led CIMCE courses with Daniela Schmidt. I have found Daniela's courses comprehensive both in terms of theory and practice. Daniela not only provides the practical tools the interpreter can utilize to improve his or her interpreting skills, she also dives into the theoretical aspects of the topic in question. By combining the two, she makes her courses very interesting and educational. As a scholar, I find this intriguing. I enjoy Daniela's friendly personality, her professionalism and the courtesy she extends to her colleagues in the field. Above all, I appreciate her flexibility and how she strives to work with the busy schedules of interpreters, especially the globetrotting interpreters. Thank you Daniela for your immense contributions to the field. Yvette Hovsepian Bearce, Ph.D
