Course description

This course concentrates on the acquisition of knowledge and the enhancement of skills introduced in Course I-IV in preparation for interpreting in different settings. Four interpreting settings are introduced and explored; court interpreting, interpreting with child victims/witnesses; health care interpreting; and interpreting in the violence against women sector. Protocols, procedures and techniques necessary for functioning effectively as an interpreter are reviewed and discussed forming the basis for problem solving exercises. A variety of articles with accompanying activities, and research and field observation assignments provide context and add to the richness of course content. Skill and knowledge development and assessment are supported by role play and case scenario analysis in theoretical situations.
