Medical Interpreting: How can I interpret that?

  • Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Raleigh-Cary 500 Caitboo Avenue Cary, NC, 27518 United States (map)

Through many mentor sessions working with interpreters, I have kept notes to share. It's amazing to see how interpreters creatively face challenges as they translate from English to ASL. I treasure opportunities to help interpreters improve their visual thinking, which Deaf audiences appreciate. My workshop offers a myriad of ways to make interpreting more visual. We will demonstrate how classifiers may be used most effectively to communicate specific information in medical interpreting situations. Broaden your understanding of visual interpreting techniques regarding anatomical and medical interpreting. Learn more about Deaf Culture. Visual clips, visual aids, analysis, current medical terminology, and outlines will be available. This workshop will focus on providing clear sign language interpretation on medical topics such as surgery, medical equipment, and causes of injury, illness and various conditions. (0.8 RID CEUs)
