Moving Towards Meaning - Interpreting Techniques
The Moving Towards Meaning - Interpreting Techniques series is composed of 3 separate DVDs:
Getting Started: A role play of an interpreting situation, with examples of different interpreting paths which might be better followed. "Begin as you mean to go on" A confident, professional start to an interview sets up the situation for the best possible communication. We see how an interpreter might deal with this matter in an interview between a lawyer and a non English-speaking client.
In Control: A role play of an interpreting situation, with examples of different interpreting paths which might be better followed. It is essential for the interpreter to be in control of the communication flow between his/her clients. We see how an interpreter might deal with this matter in a medical interview between a doctor and a non English-speaking client.
Meetings: There is a problem with the installation of some heavy machinery at a car parts manufacturing plant. The Japanese engineer sent out to supervise the installation has different expectations of work practices and safety, and a dispute is brewing. You have been asked to interpret during a meeting of the four people concerned.
Cultural Issues: A role play of an interpreting situation, with examples of different interpreting paths which might be followed. The issue of cultural difference can easily affect the quality of communication. We see how an interpreter might handle this problem in an interview between a social worker and a non English-speaking client.
Signing Awareness: You have been called in to assist in an interview at a police station. A deaf person is being questioned regarding some cannabis plants found in his house. The police officer is suspicious that you are not interpreting everything correctly, since you do not seem to interpret word for word. At the end, the deaf person is obviously confused when handed a record of interview to read and sign.
Facing Aggression: An Italian man is negotiating a divorce settlement at the Family Court. There are difficult financial and custody issues at stake and the situation is tense. The tension is made worse by the fact that the lawyer must often leave to negotiate with the other party.
