Multilingual Interpreting

March 18th, 2017


An English speaking interpreter walks into a French class. How does he/she interpret for that? 


An English speaking interpreter walks into a doctor's appointment and the consumer is from Mexico. How does he/she deal with that? 


An interpreter stands up at church to interpret the worship service and the pastor announces the day's music is a children's choir from Kenya. What is an interpreter to do? 


These scenarios happen every day for interpreters from coast to coast. What should an interpreter do? How do you make an impossible situation like these "possible"? There are ways to take such complicated stories and turn them into successful on the job experiences. It starts with the Multilingual Interpreting workshop!
