The course concentrates on the acquisition of knowledge and the enhancement of skills introduced in previous courses 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 and accompanying self study and terminology development activities enrich the course. Research and field observation provide context for course content. Skill and knowledge development and assessment are supported by role plays and case scenarios.
