‘Interpreting, like all practice professions, requires skills and knowledge beyond the technical skills that are also required for work effectiveness’ (Dean & Pollard, 2001). Interpreters need to master the skill of interpreting. This 30-min presentation looks beyond the profession of sign language interpreting to examine the skills required of other professions and disciplines, in order to consider what skills and knowledge beyond technical skills are required.”
If you wish to attend this workshop, please RSVP to Danny by Wednesday 13th October at firstname.lastname@example.org.
