Workshop Description:

The main objective for trained interpreters is to bridge the communication gap between client and the provider who do not speak the same language and make sure the message is understood by both parties involved during the encounter.

 

However, there are other roles that interpreters must take on to facilitate the communication effectively. Interpreters may serve as the cultural broker by providing the necessary cultural frameworks when a conflict arise due to cultural differences. Interpreters may have to manage the flow of the communication by setting the expectations and boundaries with providers and clients who never work or have limited experience working with an interpreter. This would be our focus on our workshop. As much as the interpreter wishes to deliver quality interpretation there are ways that the provider could help with the session to be more seamless.

 

This workshop provides providers with the necessary knowledge and skills on how to use professional interpreters effectively.
