Its not just you, sometimes every interpreter feels like a fraud just waiting to be caught.
Irregardless is not a word, frozen things thaw-they don’t unthaw, and ravel and unravel mean exactly the same thing.
You are never “just” the interpreter:
- YOU are the interpreter;
- You ARE the interpreter;
- You are THE interpreter; or,
- You are the INTERPRETER.
You are never JUST anything!
Interpreting is not who you are, it’s what you do. Don’t tie your self-worth to your next bad day.
Nobody went to the morgue and nobody went to jail, by definition it went fine; go to sleep.
Avoid “interpreterese,” everything did not happen to Deaf people “a long time ago” Every story a person who is Deaf tells is not “a story I will never forget.” Deaf people don’t “DECIDE” to do everything-often things just happen (sigh)! Oh, and every sentence does not begin “so” nor does every sentence end “and.”
It is not possible to “plagiarize” an interpretation; if it worked for that interpreter then and it works for you now, use it!
