Sign language interpreters in Latin America

As coordinator of the AIIC Sign Language Network (SLN), I was invited to be one of the keynote speakers at the 3rd Latin America conference for sign language interpeters in Panama this summer. I presented on my research study on the status of sign language interpreting in Europe which I have been conducting over the past sixteen years. A second presentation on AIIC and SLN I held with Hilda Tejada, SLN member for Mexico. We provided insights into what AIIC stands for and the SLN achievements since 2012, the year sign language interpreters could join AIIC. You can read the full report of the presentations on
