Two day training interpreting English - Danish Sign Language

On 12 & 13 January Danish Sign Language Interpreters attended the two day training in Copenhagen on 'Interpreting from and into English as a third language'. CFD asked me to organize this training for their staff interpreters. A total of 15 enthusiastic interpreters learned strategies and techniques on how to interpret between Danish Sign Language and English. The interactive training was combination of theory and practice in groups, pairs and individually. We worked on several topics from interpreting formal presentations to business meetings, discussing common phrases and vocabulary. In June 2017 the interpreters will attend part II of the training.
