What you'll learn

Pre-COVID 19, workplace interpreting mostly saw interpreters located onsite with the deaf client, based in an office or other employment setting. Since the pandemic, this interpreting domain has changed significantly, with interpreters and deaf people working remotely and utilising a variety of platforms. Whilst there has been a return to the office for some deaf people, many workplaces are now operating a hybrid model, and it is likely that interpreting from home will continue to be the “new normal”. This brings unique challenges to the workplace interpreter in managing workplace interaction, maintaining the client-interpreter relationship and dealing with the complexities of technology.
