On 19 May 2017 the annual seminar of the European Union of the Deaf is hosted for the first time in Malta. I will be presenting on 'Sign language interpreting services in employment settings - a European overview':
In order to make society accessible for sign language users, we need qualified, trained, and properly remunerated sign language interpreters. My research conducted across 45 European countries and regions provides data on the education, qualification, organization, and remuneration of sign language interpreters. From these analyzed results I will present an overview of the current status of sign language interpreting services provided in employment settings, including the entitlement, the hours, payment and working conditions.
