    Interpreting Covid 19 (Novel Coronavirus)




    We recognize that interpreters’ lives and livelihood has changed with this pandemic. Our students and associates might have less work or no work now, while the world is trying to adjust to the situation. Remote interpreting is becoming and will most likely stay much more in-demand. Work has become more difficult for some due to being on-call, while at the same time managing housework, family and homeschooled kids. Some might need to learn new equipment and understand new terminology.

    This webinar is meant as a validation and recognition to all interpreters facing the changes in career and anxiety due to current events. It will have an interactive part where attendees will write terms in their own language and discuss them with the presenter, as well as ask her any questions. We will provide useful emotional support and glossary building tools, to help interpreters approach every day with positive knowledge and confidence. We are in this together. And together we can.

    During this webinar, you will learn how to interpret patient encounters related to COVID-19 while keeping yourself safe.
