Recordings available: Humanitarian Interpreting and Interpreter Training
The Translation and Interpreting Studies program organised a symposium on humanitarian interpreting on April 1-2 2016. It looked at the challenges and the opportunities in the provision and use of interpreters in conflict zones, disaster zones, refugee camps and terrorism trials, as well as adequate training solutions for such contexts of work. It was attended by more than 120 participants each day: practitioners, trainers and researchesr, but also end-users, policy-makers, representatives of NGOs, and stakeholders from the full spectrum of industries were represented.
