"I've just finished watching this webinar and it was fantastic! Full to the brim with practical tips which will be so handy to take away on my next assignment. It covered all I was expecting and more so am really pleased with it." - Rosie, Interpreter

Whether you’ve got some experience or if you’re just interested in the thought of possibly one day doing some interpreting in theatre or at large scale events, this is an informative and supportive session.

When you get that call to interpret a performance, what do you need to ask the theatre – and indeed yourself – before you can accept? What practical issues might you need to address? How can you communicate effectively with the theatre to ensure you have what you need on the night?

In this webinar Sarah will take you through the process of theatre interpreting from start to finish.

You will also have the opportunity to learn skills which you can transfer to the other domains you work in. Sarah aims to inspire confidence, provide a space to share experience (whether new to this domain or not) and foster a supportive environment.

Are you an ASL interpreter seeking CEUs? This webinar has been approved by SCRID, an RID Sponsor, for .2 CEUs.

  3. Analysis of practical aspects of the job e.g. what questions to ask before the performance.
  4. An awareness of how to approach post performance reflection and aftercare
