Beyond First Person Consecutive: Interpreting in Difficult Situations
Fri, October 6, 2017, 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM EDT
Interpreters receive basic training and instruction on using first person consecutive interpreting. But what about those situations that demand something different to render the most effective interpretation possible? This workshop focuses on the challenges of interpreting in a mixed-language setting, interpreting for children and the elderly, and interpreting side conversations. This workshop is appropriate for all foreign languages and all skill levels. Legal interpreters are also welcome to attend.

This workshop is approved for CEUs through the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters' Continuing Education Approval Program (CEAP). Each participant receives a certificate of attendance.
