"Why are we afraid of the audience?" This was the key issue of the training conducted by Mrs. Ecaterina Godoroja. Indeed! Why some interpreters do not feel comfortable in front of a large audience, lose their self-control, forget what they want to say and wish to run away and hide somewhere where nobody can see them, maybe even in the simultaneous interpretation booth. Some interpreters feel more comfortable in that little "cage" than in front of people, even if they lack the basic conveniences.
