I have studied Mass media communications, I worked for radio and television in my mother tongue - Slovak. I am living in Greece for 10 years, attained Certification in modern Greek A - grade, D -(highest) level. I am bilingual in Slovak and Hungarian. Is there a possibility somewhere to train and learn interpreting in these less common languages?

Dear Heda,

You might want to contact the schools which offer CI training programs and ask. You'll find that they'll try to provide the necessary courses for less common languages if there is sufficient demand.

Hope this helps!

This question is a bit old now and I hope Heda has found a solution. For anyone reading this for the first time I would suggest the following for conference interpreter training...

You could try interpreting schools in Bratislava or Budapest where there HU and SK are most likely to be taught. (There are no schools in the AIIC Schools Finder ) that teach HU-SK, EL-SK or EL-HU. I think it is very unlikely you'll find a school that does more than one of those pairs.

What you might have to do is find a school that teaches EN-HU or EN-SK and learn to interpret from English into one or other language, then hope that the school is prepared to help you out with one of your other language pairs.

EN, EL, HU into SK or EN EL SK into HU might be a combination the EU is interested in.
