What is this about? Judiciary interpreters are all too often set adrift solo on the rough waters of the courts, with little to guide them, tossed about by misguided and conflicting opinions of attorneys, defendants and even judges. The just published Washington State Standards of Practice and Ethics for Judiciary Interpreters endeavors to serve as a comprehensive guide and moral compass, written by and for court interpreters. The authors/presenters take a deep dive into complex and often controversial topics such as conflict of interest, advocacy, confidentiality/privilege and perceived bias, as well as elaborating on the key elements of accuracy—the north star of interpreting.
Part 1 will focus on the following chapters of the Standards: Accuracy, Honesty & Integrity, and Competence.
During the class, participants will use the manual and will need to have a copy to take part. Interpreters who are credentialed with the Washington State Administrative Office of the Courts can order a free printed copy of the manual using this form: https://survey.alchemer.com/s3/6817979/Standards-of-Practice-Manual-Order-Form.
You can find an online version of the manual on this webpage: Standards of Practice and Ethics for Washington State Judiciary Interpreters
