    • Folio, 93 Pike St. #307, Seattle, WA 98101

    Join us at Folio to examine some real-life examples of how editors and translators work together on manuscripts before publication. What are the steps in the process? How does each step impact the developing manuscript? What are some best practices for translators in considering and responding to suggested edits?

    We will take a detailed look at actual translation manuscripts marked up by a publisher's copy editor and discuss the editing process from the translator's point of view.

    The Northwest Literary Translators, part of the Northwest Translators and Interpreters Society, meet the third Thursdays of most months at Folio, the Seattle Athenaeum. This will be our last formal meeting before we break for the summer. For more information, join our Facebook group.

    Improve Your Online Research Skills:
    Finding Better Answers to Translation Questions

    By Elizabeth Adams

    If you are excited by the challenge of translation terminology research but sometimes struggle to find the answers you need, join me for an hour+ of my best tips and strategies for doing quality online research. So much of the research advice out there is aimed at students and other people doing fairly simple searches, while translation research requires a much higher level of thinking. I’ve read the experts and the best practices, listened to lots of translators, and learned from my own mistakes over the years. This webinar will give you the creative strategies you need to ask the right questions and find the right answers! Be sure to bring questions (you can email them to me ahead of time if you want)!

    About the presenter:

    Elizabeth Adams has been a freelance translator since 1998, but her interest in online research dates back to Telnet and Kermit. As the internet has grown, it has become both more useful and more overwhelming for the kind of research translators do on a daily basis. Elizabeth enjoys hearing about other translators’ research triumphs and frustrations, and she gets tremendous joy from sharing research skills and digital literacy in a way that is specifically targeted at practicing translators.

    NOTIS Community Interpreters Division presents

    Interpreting for the Injured Worker 

    What is this? The purpose of this six-hour workshop is to help interpreters improve their knowledge of the terminology needed to accurately and successfully interpret for injured workers. This workshop will help healthcare interpreters as well as court interpreters who work in workers’ compensation cases and depositions.

    What you will learn:

    • Types of injuries (specific, cumulative, stress-related, etc.);
    • The language of the worker (types of jobs, tasks, tools, machinery, etc.);
    • Comprehensive and detailed description of medical conditions resulting from work injuries: orthopedic (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, back disorders, knee, ankle), chronic pain, mental health disorders;
    • Types of treatment (PT, pain management, medications, psychological, FRP, etc.);
    • Overview of the workers’ compensation system (medical-legal evaluations, parties involved, disability rating, apportionment, C&R, MMI, stipulation, utilization review, etc.);
    • Interpreting in depositions for injured workers;
    • Challenges for interpreters and cultural considerations.

    This will be an interactive and engaging workshop. There will be ample opportunities to review specific vocabulary, scenarios, and practice consecutive interpretation though role-plays and mini-dialogues. Participants will receive glossaries and study materials to practice after the workshop.

    Saturday, August 3, 10:00AM-1:00PM

    Blyth Park, Bothell, WA

    Read to the end for important details!

    Come one, come all, and bring your family to a NEW location for the NOTIS Summer Picnic!  This year we will be hosting this fun event at Blyth Park in Bothell, surrounded by the tranquil shade of numerous giant pine trees adjacent to the large picnic shelter we have reserved for everyone's enjoyment! Please bring something to share, and we promise you juicy, summery watermelon, and a grill on which to cook your meat. Challenge new friends to a round of frisbee golf on a popular, well-established course through the forest, or just sit in the shade or sun, and enjoy what we are predicting is going to be a gorgeous, sunny day. Your children will be entertained for hours on the swings, slides, monkey bars, and the majestic tire mountain (all directly adjacent to our picnic shelter, so you can keep an eye on them)!

    PIE BAKE-OFF!  Enter our pie contest! Put on those oven mitts and bring us your favorite home-made pie. Berries will be in season! Wanted: Three NOTIS members with an appetite to taste the delicious pie and determine the winner! The rest of the pies will be our delicious dessert after lunch. (PRIZE TO THE WINNER: Home-made cookies or muffins...guaranteed to be delicious - since the pies will be devoured.)

    THREE-LEGGED OBSTACLE COURSE THROUGHOUT THE PARK! Pick a partner and see how well you can get through the park with three legs, while holding a metal spoon and balancing an egg on it. The team that completes the course fastest, with as many eggs as possible INTACT, wins a prize!

    CAN YOU FEEL IT?! How would you rate your tactile abilities? Try your hands at guessing the unknown mystery object in the box! Could it be a toad? A pile of mashed potatoes? A kitten? Guess it correctly and win a prize!



    There is plenty of parking at Blyth Park, but here are three more options:

    Old Wayne Golf Course Conservation Easement (16721 96th Ave. NE, Bothell) - Walk out of the dirt parking lot and through the tunnel with the colorful walls on the adjacent bike path, and cross the bridge over the river that you'll see straight in front of you. Once on the other side of the bridge, you will see a chain link fence alongside Blyth Park. Look for a gate on your right-hand side to enter the park. The park is a three-minute walk from that parking lot.

    Sammamish River Park Parking Lot - If you park in this dirt parking lot, walk one block to the corner (in the opposite direction of the bridge) of 102 Ave. NE and E. Riverside Dr.  You will see a paved walkway that runs parallel to E. Riverside Dr. Walk 15 minutes on this serene, paved trail directly to the front entrance of Blyth Park. 

    The Bothell Park and Ride is adjacent to 102 Ave. NE, so is about a 20-minute walk from Blyth Park.
