Thank you, Claudia! You've shared a very good practical paradigm one needs to adopt to make a steady progress to becoming a good court interpreter. I particularly love the "think like a lawyer, talk like a lawyer" part, and also the techniques to decode the source message and then encode it to the target. The thing about staying realistic to spoken language circumstances (not having to always do a verbatim interpretation) is also an eye opener, at least for me.
