Public Service Interpreting and Translation

Thu 11 Sep 2014 6:30 for 7 pm

Presented by Danielle d'Hayer, Associate Professor and Teaching Fellow at London Metropolitan University (LMU)

Danielle will give us an insight into the very special area of public service interpreting and translation, the special qualities required, the constraints of the role and the specialist training available. She will include some information on job prospects and pay. We are also hoping to include a short exercise, based on a typical PSI scenario, so that people can gain a real understanding of the role.

This presentation will be suitable for those already working in PSIT, those thinking of embarking on a career in the area and those who would like to know more, out of general interest.

Coffee/tea and biscuits will be available from 6.30pm; drinks can be bought at the bar.

Free to LRG members; £3 entry for non-LRG

AGM & 20th Anniversary Party

Wed 3 Dec 2014

The LRG celebrates its twentieth anniversary this year and, for the occasion, we are organising a special Christmas Party and supper in the Judge's Court at Brown's Brasserie, in Covent Garden (www. http://www.theroomsatbrowns.co.uk/home/ ).

We hope that many current and former LRG members will join us for this special event. Further information and full booking details for the (very reasonably-priced) tickets will be published in the next, Nov/Dec ITI Bulletin, on the LRG website (http://www.iti-lrg.org.uk/), on the ITI Events Calendar (http://www.iti.org.uk/professional-development-events/iti-events-calendar/) and in all the other usual channels.
