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.See also: http://learning.londonmet.ac.uk/epacks/interpreting-translation/index.html
