MASTER THE ART OF SIGHT TRANSLATION: CIVIL & CRIMINAL
(Spanish – English)
FLORIDA: 3.6 CIEs – CEAA# 21-0462
Sight Translation presents specific challenges to the court interpreter and interpreter trainee given that documents presented in court or at depositions or on interpreter exams can range from a highly formal register with formulaic legal language (contracts, Judge’s Rulings, Divorce Decrees, etc.) to more informal registers found in police reports, news clippings, etc and even a sub-standard register encountered in hand-written letters. The interpreter’s job is challenging!
This 3-hour course seeks to help the interpreter and interpreter trainee MASTER the Art of Sight Translation through proper technique and intensive guided practice.
MASTER SIGHT TRANSLATION:
- Proper Sight Translation technique – accuracy, smooth pacing, appropriate tone
- Formulaic Language and Civil & Criminal Terminology
- Intense practice with authentic court documents adapted from actual cases
- Fine-tune your delivery through incremental practice
