When the phone rings at 1am and you know you are working a 8am, kiss your significant other and your bed goodbye, tell them both how much you will miss them, and remind yourself that you are doing a job you love and you will see both of them again… eventually.
Interpreters. Like a mime, but usually less irritating. Usually.
Solid truth at a panel discussion in my class.
Question: Do you like interpreters?
Deaf Consumer’s Answer: I generally I like all the interpreters I work with.
Q: Do you trust interpreters?
DCA: (grin) Which interpreter?
One of my favorite Notes!
Literal Translation eats up Processing Time.
Good enough is NOT GOOD ENOUGH until the Deaf patient says it is!
This weekend I will be presenting at Colorado RID
I will give two workshops on Saturday:
Leaving Literal Translation Behind; and,
Ask Me Anything: Interpreting in Civil/Criminal Legal Settings
I will present Ask Me Anything: Interpreting in Civil/Criminal Legal Settings again on Sunday
(I may even try to look in on the student conference on Thursday 😋)
I am so very excited that CRID is partnering with DOVE for this conference. https://www.deafdove.org
I work with a sister organization, Sego Lily Center for Abused Deaf, here in Utah as often as I can. I cannot say enough good things about these organizations. They deserve our time and treasure and I am thrilled to do anything I can to support DOVE’s great work.
Thank you for the invite CRID! Can’t wait to see you all there!
