Voicing strategies for the interpreter’s toolbox: What we can learn from International Sign interpreting

Cost from £25

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.

Interpreting in medical settings – are we really prepared?

Cost from £25

Medical interpreting is both challenging and rewarding. It’s a domain we don’t enter into lightly and there are serious consequences to our actions as professionals.

In the webinar we will be looking at some of the areas in which we can develop our knowledge and understanding to help us provide a better service. We will look at things such as anatomy and physiology, medical terminology and jargon, clients’ attitudes and expectations of interpreters and how we can deal with these in a sensitive and effective manner.

Telling the Story – developing advanced skills in BSL to English interpreting

Cost from £25

Clare’s first webinar, Voiceover – finding the story behind the signs, was met with rave reviews such as:

“Clare was a great presenter!” and

“Can honestly say I have no negative points to provide..all questions were answered”

So we’re really glad she’s come back to develop the subject further.

In this advanced webinar, Clare will briefly revisit the terms and language from her first webinar then build on this to introduce further tools which learners can apply to their BSL-English interpretation. This webinar is suitable for both qualified and interpreters and will assist you to build on the skills you already have.
