WEBSHOP: Going Remote: Set-up and Best Practices for Video Interpreting Trainer: Caroline Remer and Lindsay Bentsen

What is it about?In an interactive webshop, learn VRI inside and out! In this session, we will go from the nuts and bolts of Video Remote Interpreting Set up to an interactive role-play in which you will practice all the skills we go over. You will come away from this course with a sense of calm and understanding of the VRI space and all of its intricacies. Join Caroline for this hands on workshop in which you will learn VRI Set Up, technical implications, best practices, most common sessions, and more!

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!

Who is teaching?
Caroline Remer has been in the language interpretation space for more than 10 years as a Spanish interpreter and with Boostlingo as Global Vendor Programs Manager since May 2018. She has been fortunate to be able to live abroad most of her educational career, doing her undergrad at sister school of USF, Universidad de Deusto in Bilbao, Spain, studying international relations and Spanish. She finished her Masters in Peace, Conflict and Development Studies in 2015 at UNESCO sponsored Universitat Jaume I in Castellon de la Plana, Spain, where she finished a 200-page dissertation translated into Spanish and English regarding the power of food in creating intercultural dialogue. Caroline moved back to her hometown of San Francisco in 2015 after finishing her studies and entered into the Social Work field, working as part of a care team to serve low-income, Spanish-speaking older adults. After transitioning from the Social Work field, she found Boostlingo where she manages a robust network of Professional Remote interpreters, ensuring quality, advocating and promoting career development for interpreters, and hosting a myriad of social media efforts and webinars for remote interpreters. As an interpreter herself, she loves working with and promoting the role of the interpreter both in a patient’s care team and in every facet of life.

Lindsay Bentsen is a French <> English medical and conference interpreter, interpreting trainer, and an occasional contract interpreter for the Department of State. She earned her MA in Translation and Interpretation from the Monterey Institute of International Studies (MIIS). Lindsay holds Washington DSHS medical authorization and CoreCHI certification. She lives in Wenatchee, WA with her family.
