Voicing strategies for the interpreter’s toolbox: What we can learn from International Sign interpreting
Looking to improve your voiceover or just curious to know more about international sign? In this webinar you’ll learn how International Sign can assist your day-to-day voice over (sign language to English/spoken language) skills.
Brett shares several strategies utilised by interpreters as they took a highly visual piece of communication in International Sign, and interpreted the message into spoken English. This research is applicable and will be of interest to interpreters of national sign languages, such as BSL/English interpreters, and ASL/English interpreters because all of the strategies identified are techniques that many sign language interpreters do or could use in their everyday work.

When working with clients suffering trauma, we can feel an emotional residue, stress and/or weariness and lose our zest for life. Why does it happen? As empathetic professionals, how do we protect ourselves from vicarious trauma, or minimise its effects? We’re delighted to have Wendy back to expand on her previous webinars.
