"Interpreting Witness Testimony and Depositions; Why is Consecutive Interpreting Considered Best Practice"

When: Saturday, May 12, 2018 9am-4pm

Where: The American School for the Deaf

In this all day workshop the instructor will provide participants with opportunities to practice interpreting witness testimony and depositions in order to evaluate first hand why these should only be done consecutively. This process will utilize various ways to practice and analyze the efficacy of Simultaneous Interpreting versus Consecutive Interpreting and then discuss how the use of one over another may impact the results.
