So you get booked to interpret within an Occupational Therapy (OT) session. What is expected of you? What are the challenges? What is OT?!
OT sessions can be fun, practical and interesting sessions to be a part of but it is important to understand the rationale behind the profession and what the therapist will expect from you.
Voicing strategies for the interpreter’s toolbox: What we can learn from a case study of International Sign interpreting
Brett Best9 November 2017 7.30pm-9.30pm
How can International Sign language assist our voice over (sign language to English/spoken language) skills?
Brett shares several strategies utilised by two interpreters as they took a highly visual communicative rendition (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.
