The Professional Toolkit of a Judiciary Interpreter: Essential Skills and “The Ninja Package”

Description

NAJIT Academy Presents:
 
The Professional Toolkit of a Judiciary Interpreter: Essential Skills and “The Ninja Package” 
This 90-minute, language neutral webinar will be presented in English. It introduces highly proficient bilinguals and newly professional interpreters to essential concepts and exercises for developing the mindset and technical skills of a successful judiciary interpreter. We will practice foundational skills (such as shadowing and dual-tasking) that will eventually lead to solid consecutive and simultaneous interpreting technique. We will then learn about concepts and strategies (such as developing an awareness of unconscious bias, assessing when and when not to mediate) for training ourselves to be as discreet, reliable, and impartial as possible in the high-stakes assignments that occur in jails, courthouses, attorneys’ offices, and so on. Attendees need to bring a recording device (e.g., a smartphone), lined notepad (plain paper in a pinch), and pencil or pen.
