"I learnt new strategies to use when working into English" - Oscar, Interpreter
This webinar presents the first published research examining interpreting from International Sign to spoken English. Brett examines several strategies utilised by interpreters and helps us apply this to our own voice over skills. Brett also lifts the lid on international sign, so if you’re curious about the field and what it can teach you, this webinar is for you!
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. By becoming more consciously aware of these strategies, interpreters are more easily able to recognise that these techniques are available as options and may therefore be more likely to apply them when appropriate.
- Gain a basic understanding of the linguistic parameters of International Sign
- Be able to name at least three strategies that they can use when producing a spoken interpretation.
- Reflect on whether they have used any of these strategies in their own work
