    What is this? The coronavirus pandemic challenges interpreters to transmit specialized information accurately, as well as to adapt practice to the re-organized and stressed healthcare system.

    • What is the difference between screening and testing?
    • What is the difference between testing for viral RNA and testing for antibodies?
    • What is viral shedding?
    • What is a route of transmission?
    • What is immunity?

    Part 2 will focus on how to adapt to interpreting during the pandemic. We’ll talk about

    • Switching to remote modalities.
    • How to stay safe onsite assignments.
    • The value of different sorts of masks.
    • What hand hygiene to use in what setting.
    • How to react to the anxiety of staff, providers, patients, family members, and one's own interpreter scheduler
    • How to decide which assignments to take.
    Linda Golley has a background in direct patient care as well as in managing and training healthcare interpreters. She created the class Infection Control and Industrial Safety for Medical Interpreters. Ms. Golley presently creates classes for healthcare staff, social workers, and interpreters as a Training and Development Specialist at MasterWord Services.

    "Children’s Literature in Translation" with Lawrence Schimel and Daniel Hahn

    About this Conference and Conversation Series

    Join PEN America and the CUNY Center for the Humanities for Week 4 of Translating the Future as we continue our series of conversations between renowned translators with "Children’s Literature in Translation," featuring Lawrence Schimel in conversation with Daniel Hahn. Moderated by Lyn Miller-Lachmann.

    Translators of children's literature—always read by both adults and children—face various unique challenges, including the potential for bi- or multilingualism, the incorporation of illustrations, and differing cultural taboos or views of what is and isn't appropriate for children. Many classics of children's literature (The Little PrincePippi Longstockings, the Grimm & Andersen fairy tales, etc.) are read in translation, even if they're not treated as such the way adult books in translation would be. Are translators of works for children "translating for the future" by helping them to develop empathy and learn about other cultures in our globally connected world, or are they simply sharing universal stories full of delight and emotion that hopefully create lifelong readers?

    Click here to register for this event and for the link to the livestream. Free and open to the public, the livestream will start at Tue, June 2nd, at 1:30 PM (EDT). 

    The conversations will be hosted by Esther Allen & Allison Markin Powell.  

    More information about this event and others in the Translating the Future series is available here.

    Making the Tough Decisions
    A skills-building workshop
    on interpreter ethics in healthcare settings

    An Interactive Webshop

    What is a “webshop”? A webshop is just like an interactive onsite class, but held online through Zoom. During a webshop, you can ask questions and engage in discussion. You may be divided into “break-out” rooms where you’ll be working with other participants on exercises or on practicing a skill. There may be quizzes and polls. So, while there may be some PowerPoint and lecture, this is not like your typical webinar. Your full attention and participation is expected; that’s what makes it fun!

    What is this one about? The world of the healthcare interpreter is fraught with difficult ethical dilemmas and the need for making in-the-moment decisions. For example, if a patient asks that certain information not be interpreted, do you keep it confidential even if the non-disclosure may harm the patient? Do you interpret everything accurately even when the message could impact or destroy the patient-provider relationship? Do you withdraw from a medical encounter that is too complicated for you when that means the patient will get no interpreter at all? How is an interpreter to decide?

    This interactive webshop will introduce experienced healthcare interpreters to a process for thinking about these difficult situations and for quickly making ethical decisions about what to do.

    The class will begin with a quick review and comparison of two Codes of Ethics: the National Code of Ethics for Interpreters in Health Care and DSHS’ Interpreter, Translator, and Licensed Agency Personnel Code of Professional Conduct. Participants will then learn the ethical decision-making model included in the California Healthcare Interpreting Association’s Standards of Practice. Concrete examples will be used to show how to apply the model to real-life situations. Finally, participants will break up into small groups to consider specific ethical dilemmas. Groups will apply the CHIA model and come up with one or several acceptable responses to the dilemma. These will then be shared with the larger group for consideration and, if there is time, for further discussion.

    Who is teaching?     Cindy Roat is a national consultant and trainer with 29 years’ experience in the healthcare interpreting field. With an MPH in International Health Services, Cindy has made significant contributions to the healthcare interpreting field in the areas of training, program development, policy formulation, advocacy and organizational outreach. Her written works are key resources for interpreters, providers and administrators alike. Cindy was the principal author of the original Bridging the Gap, and her most recent book, Healthcare Interpreting in Small Bites, is being used as an ancillary text at many basic training programs.

    POSTPONED - Please note new date!

    Texts translated from another language present a special challenge to editors. A poor translation can sound awkward - but what if the language is supposed to be strange? How much are editors “allowed” to fix a translation? What if you don’t know the source language? How can you edit a translation while respecting the original? This presentation will help you navigate these tricky questions. Professional translator Shelley Fairweather-Vega will share the inside story of how translation works and why, and provide you the insight you need to edit translations effectively and with confidence. 

    Shelley Fairweather-Vega is a freelance translator (and editor of translations) working mainly from Russian to English. She is a member of the American Translators Association and the American Literary Translators Association, and the president of the Northwest Translators and Interpreters Society. Her translations have been edited and published by AmazonCrossing, Tilted Axis Press, Syracuse University Press, and several scholarly and literary journals.

    The talk is free and open to the public. For more information and to register, please click here.

    Interpreting for the Injured Worker

    More info and registration will be available soon!

    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 injures (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.
