    Interpreter Support Group


    Medical or legal, spoken or sign language, whatever the discipline, interpreters act as both witnesses and narrators of many aspects of trauma, which over time can impact mental health and emotional well-being. 

    This support group, led by a Medical Interpreter, will include education related to stress and self-care as well as dedicated time to support each other, ask questions, and share experiences. Come to receive support, learn something new, or to support others!

    The workshop is a continuation of previous sessions, but you can come to one or to all.


    FACILITATOR:    STEPHEN SEWELL

                                  Interpreter

    Stephen Sewell's first experience as an ad hoc medical interpreter was at the University of Minnesota Hospitals in 1971 (long before interpreting was regularly available). He has pursued his interest in Spanish language and culture through various community service jobs, as well as being a teacher of Spanish. His wide-ranging interests include cognitive development, cooking, music and the brain, and gardening. He is especially interested in encouraging others to explore learning and self-care opportunities. He recently completed training to be a trainer for The Community Interpreter International course.

    for Interpreters

    SEPTEMBER 8, 2018

    for our event

    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.
