Training for sign language interpreters:
Interpreting from and to English as a 3rd language - 

18 & 19 January 2019

Place: Nuremberg (Nürnberg), Germany

18 January: 9.30 - 16.30 hours
19 January: 9.30 - 16.30 hours

As a sign language interpreter you are increasingly requested to work into and from English as non-native speakers. During the two day training you will learn linguistic and coping strategies in order to match these demands. The training is a combination of theory and practice and covers:

  • Third language interpreting & international settings
  • Linguistic strategies in formal and informal settings
  • Coping strategies and tools
  • Reflective practices
  • Team interpreting

During the practice sessions you will work from spoken English to your national sign language and vice versa. You are kindly requested to bring video materials in your national sign language. 

TIP: Bring a colleague! It will benefit your learning process to register as a team (two interpreters with the same national sign language).

Participant’s profile
You have extensive experience as a sign language interpreter in your national sign & spoken language. You can work with English (minimum of B2 level according to the CEFR framework) as an active and passive working language.
