Credentialing opportunities for interpreters

Current Government Division Assistant Administrator Monique Roske, is co-presenting a session with Emma Garkavi, the Seattle Municipal Court Interpreter Services Coordinator, and our very own ID Leadership Council member Milena Calderari-Waldron. The session is in the Government Division Track and it’s called “Trust me. I’m a certified interpreter!” You won’t want to miss it!

Check out this PDF file about credentialing opportunities and codes of ethics for interpreters that will not only be used in the presentation, but also be of great value to all for future reference.

Interview with Anna Vianna – The Oscars!

Anna Vianna was recently kind enough to speak with me about her passions and work. From her days before interpreting as a science researcher to her recent achievement of becoming the voice of the Oscars in Brazil, she took me through her life and shared her solid work ethic. Surely a read not to be missed!

FIT Congress

For those who were unable to travel to the land of Oz for this year’s FIT Conference comes this report from Marsel, past assistant administrator of the Interpreter Division. It’s an eye opening summary of what was a comprehensive congress, focused on issues as diverse as the disruption technology is making within our profession to aboriginal interpreting in Australia, Sign Language Interpreting, the need to raise the profile of languages of limited diffusion in oppressive regimes and the need for more of us to participate in creating more ISO standards for the T&I profession.
