How are "calories burned" calculated for any given activity?

I'd love to know how many calories one burns during sign language interpreting - I think this might interest a lot of interpreters, actually.

I found a very similar Ask thread here
but it doesn't quite
answer my question.
I'm a sign language interpreter, and when I'm working I am both moving and thinking hard. I have no idea if mental aerobics could burn any calories, but I know I'm moving
. I haven't found a single calorie calculator that includes "sign language interpreting - vigorous" or "sign language interpreting - moderate" or anything like that.
Does anyone have suggestions for how I would calculate this? I don't really get how the lists are devised, so I really don't know how to begin.
