Medical Interpreting: How can I interpret that?

  • Doubletree by Hilton Hotel Raleigh-Cary (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

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.
