LRG Workshop with Janet Fraser, on Code of Ethics and Professional Standards.

A code of conduct not only regulates behaviour by professionals but also protects them against unreasonable - or even illegal - demands by clients. Importantly, it also provides guidance on all ethical issues.

In this workshop, Janet Fraser will consider the role of professional codes of conduct and use the ITI Code of Professional Conduct to tackle some real-life professional dilemmas faced by translators and interpreters.

There will also be time for discussion, so attendees are invited to share any dilemmas they face with their peers.

Janet Fraser FCIL FITI worked in-house as a translator before moving into multilingual journalism and then training postgraduate translation students.

In 2010, she moved back into translation, this time as a freelance. Outside the world of translation, she also served on her local council's Standards Committee and chaired its Assessment Sub-Committee. Janet regularly gives workshops on aspects of professionalism.
