Former Durham student, Ronan Malt graduated in 2008 after studying French and Spanish in MLAC and works as a football interpreter, most recently with Sunderland AFC. 

In his presentation, Ronan will talk about what it’s like to be a football interpreter. He will give an overview of his own work in this field as well as providing an introduction to interpreting in the football industry. Ronan will talk about the various settings and circumstances in which interpreting in football takes place and the kinds of skills a football interpreter needs. 

After a short break, Ronan will provide a workshop on interpreting note-taking technique with an interactive demonstration – of particular interest to both graduates and undergraduates studying interpreting.
