    Sight Translation: A Skill Building Workshop

     

    Objectives:

    In this workshop, participants will:

    ·   Discuss the place of sight translation in the interpreter’s toolkit

    ·   Learn about common difficulties encountered in sight translation & strategies for preparing a text for sight translation

    ·   Develop their sight translation skills through group practice

      

    Description:

    Sight translation—converting written text in one language into spoken (or signed) text in another—is an important skill for interpreters. In this workshop, we will talk about the challenges inherent in the task, decision-making and ethics issues related to sight translation, and how to prepare a document for sight translation. A significant portion of the workshop will be dedicated to group practice. Practice groups will be led by language-specific facilitators for the larger language groups. Those speaking other languages will be invited to practice in mixed-language groups facilitated by the workshop presenter.

     

    Presented by: Rachel Herring
