    Culture Connect, Inc. is excited to announce our next workshop! 

     

    As our population diversifies, school districts find themselves in more need than ever for trained interpreters in an educational setting. We know that interpreting in schools differs a great deal from medical interpreting, but what specifically are the expectations of a school interpreter and what are the tools they need to succeed?


    We have invited an expert panel to join Culture Connect in presenting their second workshop of 2014. The panel will consist of a variety of school district professionals, including nurses, psychologists, occupational, physical and speech language therapists, as well as classroom teachers, who will all have a chance to share directly with you what their needs are concerning interpretation. When you register for this workshop, you will have an opportunity to submit questions for our panelists that they will answer on the day of the workshop. By the end of the workshop, you will have an opportunity to work directly with our panelists to understand real-life scenarios that you can apply to your next school assignment. Plus, it is a great way to network with a growing specialization for interpreting!


    Looking for something else? This year, all of our workshops have been posted online in advance, so you can review each one early and determine what workshops interest you the most. Visit our event page at https://cultureconnectinc.eventbrite.com to learn more about each of the topics we will present this year!

    As always, these workshops are open to ALL interpreters, regardless of background, employment or specialization. Our workshops are all facilitated by experts in the fields they represent, and are tailored to the needs of the interpreters who register. The cost to attend each workshop is only $15, which includes breakfast; workshops with a medical theme are also eligible for CEUs.

     

    See you there! Remember to register before the day of the event at:

  • Finding the Parallels: Interpreting in Medical and Judicial Settings

    When:
    August 16-18
    Where:
    Orlando


    FINDING THE PARALLELS: INTERPRETING 
    IN MEDICAL AND JUDICIAL SETTINGS

    A conference by de la Mora Interpreter Training

     

    Orlando, FL – June 2013 – Finding the Parallels: Interpreting in Medical and Judicial Settings explores the conversion points between medical and legal interpreting. This event targets health care and legal service providers who currently serve or plan to serve Limited English Proficiency and non-English speakers, as well as interpreting professionals interested in migrating in either direction. Subjects such as complianceliability,procedurestraining and certification among others will be discussed, and the event also offers training sessions. We have applied for continuing education credits (FL State Courts, NAJIT, ATA), and one Fernando A. Ortega Scholarship for Excellence is offered to eligible candidates.  The boutique event will be held August 16-18, 2013 in Orlando, FL.

    The relevance of this event is well explained in the following excerpt published on Lexology (www.lexology.com):

    Limited English Proficiency Policies Should Also Be Revisited - The requirements to provide appropriate auxiliary aids complement healthcare providers’ obligations to provide interpreter services for patients with Limited English Proficiency (LEP) as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as well as the Joint Commission’s standards for accreditation. Accordingly, providers should consider revisiting their LEP policies at the same time they review and update their policies for communicating with patients who are deaf or hard of hearing.

    Healthcare providers who do not currently have such comprehensive communications policies should consider developing them to ensure equal access to their services. (McGuire Woods LLP – Wake Up Call for Providers – Kottkamp and Taylormoore 4/25/13 - http://tinyurl.com/d7kouzf)

    The cast of speakers includes renowned professionals from both medical and legal interpreting fields. They are de la Mora Interpreter Training founder Agustín de la Mora, Rob Cruz, Holly Mikkelson, Armando Ezquerra Hasbun, Giovanna Lester, Izabel Arocha, James Plunkett, Claudia Villalba, Natalya Mytareva, and Ed Hart, with in person and remote appearances.

     

    About de la Mora Interpreter Training – The force behind the de la Mora Interpreter Training is Agustín de la Mora, founder. Since 1998, de la Mora Interpreter Training (www.interpreter-training.com/#) has served professionals by providing them training, educational opportunities and guidance.

  • Translation Technology Workshop at the U of Maryland

    This two-and-a-half-day workshop geared toward the professional translator will help attendees equip themselves with the technological solutions they need to succeed and with an understanding of how to implement those solutions. Experienced translators as well as newcomers into the field of translation will benefit from this workshop. 

    Day 1 will be focused on computer-aided translation (CAT) tools or translation environment tools (TEnTs). We will take an in-depth look at the pros and cons of the different solutions, including a comparison of desktop tools and online tools. 

    Day 2 will continue with the exploration of translation environment tools in the morning and focus on complex file formats and their processing in the afternoon. This will range from desktop publishing formats to XML-based formats and software resource files. In the process, attendees will encounter a range of tools and processes for dealing with these formats. 

    Day 3 will deal with data resources and machine translation. We will examine whether and how machine translation can play a role as a tool for professional translators and how other data can be accessed and used in the modern translation workflow. 

    The ATA is awarding 10 CE points for the completion of this workshop. 

    The deadline to enroll is coming up soon (June 30), so I encourage you to register soon if this sounds relevant to you. 

    You can find the registration forms and other information on the lower half of 
    http://oes.umd.edu/index.php?slab=slabid-569 

    Thanks so much. I hope to see you there.

  • FCICE PREP - BOOT CAMP!!

    When:
    July 12-14, 2013
    Where:
    Dekalb County Clark Harrison Building
    Atlanta GA

    Course Description: Students will engage in multiple rounds of rigorous simultaneous and consecutive interpretation, as well as sight translation, while the instructor listens to their renditions and observes their demeanor, style, and overall presentation. After each round of simultaneous there will be a critique and analysis session during which the group (and the instructor) will listen to recordings of the students in order to provide constructive feedback. The recordings will allow the instructor to pinpoint issues with each student's rendition, identify the appropriate corrective action, and advise students on how to improve their particular weaknesses (and capitalize on their strengths) by providing specific direction. For consecutiveinterpretation, the instructor will discuss various techniques that students can employ (on an individual or combined basis) to improve their consecutiveinterpretation skills. The sight translation component of the workshop will, again, focus on presentation skills. The instructor will share some very useful techniques that the students will be able to practice in order to render professional quality sight translations.
