Cart Reporting In Chili – International Court Reporters


I have a colleague/friend in Chili who is a stenographer, court reporter that uses her stenography machine to write Spanish realtime. We found each other on Twitter. Isabel uses a Mira and writes Spanish CART. An example of how her talent is used is, let’s say Microsoft needs to present a new operating system to their employees in Santiago. The Microsoft technicians who are presenting the operating system traveling from the United States only speak English. They hire an English-Spanish translator. The translator does simultaneous translation and sends Isabel an audio feed of everything that is said in Spanish. Isabel writes Spanish realtime on a big screen so the audience participants can follow what the Microsoft personnel are presenting. BRILLIANT!

I believe writing clean realtime is one of the most exciting skills court reporters can show off. Strong realtime court reporters will not lose their jobs to voice-activated translation software. I use the words “strong” and “clean” on purpose. I have met reporters who believe they can write realtime within the first year they get out of court reporting school. I do know of one individual who passed the CRR and CCRR in his second year of reporting. He was passionate about passing the tests to prove to himself and the world he was a strong, clean writer/realtime court reporter. I believe he is rare.
