NOTIS’ Community Interpreters Division presents

WEBSHOPManaging the Interpreting Encounter

Presented by Yuliya Speroff

What is it about? While interpreting and language skills are at the core of a successful interpreting encounter, ‘soft skills’, such as the ability to create appropriate conditions for the interpreting encounter and navigate issues affecting interpretation, are no less important. This class will help interpreters develop their own pre-session, consider positioning choices during the encounter and learn interventions to ensure successful interpretation such as intervening to manage the flow of communication. Participants will work on developing their own pre-sessions and prepare scripts for dealing with commonly-occurring situations that may challenge their ability to interpret accurately and completely. 

When? Wednesday, June 15th, 2022, 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. PST. Check-in at 5:50 p.m. PLEASE CHECK IN AT 5:50 p.m. to sign in. Class from 6 p.m. – 8 p.m. PST.
