NAJIT Academy Presents:
“4 Years in Jail”: Interpreting in 4 Different Contexts (target language: Brazilian Portuguese)
This 120-minute, Portuguese-specific workshop focuses in part on some core tools of professional interpreters, then applies them in role-play scenarios in four different contexts, including both legal and court interpreting situations. These tools involve the linguistic skills required for exceling in the profession as well as stress management strategies that are equally important to master, especially when dealing with trauma-informed interpreting assignments. Attendees need to bring a recording device (e.g., a smartphone), lined notepad (plain paper in a pinch), and pencil or pen.
