INTERPRETERS UNITE! Don’t miss this first ever event of its kind that brings together a panel of interpreters, leaders in their respective fields of interpreting, under one roof to talk about the commonalities shared by the various codes of ethics governing each setting: medical judicial, and interpreting for the deaf. Learn how they’ve applied ethics to real life situations we all encounter every day.

|I-2||You Did What? Making Sense of Conflicting Codes of Ethics, Part II
Thursday, 3:30pm-4:30pm; All Levels; Presented in: English
Interpreters in the U.S. face dozens of codes of ethics that can conflict with one another at times. The speakers will discuss the professional duties of interpreters and the expectations placed upon them across different areas of interpreting. Also discussed will be the codes of ethics from various organizations: ASTM International; signed language interpreting (National Association of the Deaf – Registry of Interpreters for the Deaf); health care interpreting (National Council on Interpreting in Health Care); and court interpreting (federal courts). In addition, attendees will identify areas where lessons can be garnered from the differences between the codes. Copies of the ethics codes will be available. Participation will be encouraged.
