InZone is a centre at the University of Geneva for the study of interpretation in conflict zones and other emergency settings. InZone has offered tailor-made training courses in a variety of locations and delivery formats.

“InZone offers different types of training modules for field interpreters focusing on basic consecutive interpreting skills and professional ethics. While the general structure of basic modules remains standard across organisations, an analysis of the needs of field interpreters working for a specific organisation enables InZone to contextualize learning activities to meet the specific needs of field interpreters and to tailor each course to their work environment.” (InZone training description)
