2016 symposium on humanitarian interpreting

The work of interpreters in the 21st century is characterised by a need to adapt to many different contexts and modalities of work. One of these is the humanitarian context, where interpreters have to cope with specific demands and realities.

Working in high-risk settings and stressful environments can pose numerous challenges to the interpreters involved in the field. How do interpreters respond to them? How are they prepared to face them? What policies are put in place to help and protect them?

The symposium was co-sponsored by ONCALL Interpreters & Translators . Read more here: http://bit.ly/2bEOnxF
