My first language project that took me abroad, outside Indonesia was an interpreting project.
It was such an experience because the process of getting the project was a long one, it took almost six months.
This interpreting project was for a training in the restaurant industry. It took around two days.
There was another Indonesian who also worked on this, she was an Indonesian living in Singapore.
The project was simultaneous interpreting. During this project I had to use a tool. Most simultaneous interpreting usually endure this procedure.
The simultaneous interpreting was a hard process in that you had to concentrate hard to do the job. Overall, it was an extraordinary experience.
