It’s science! Interpreting for a presentation by another interpreter is factually & quantifiably the worst.
While an interpreter may violate HIPAA, an interpreter is not a HIPAA violation.
Don’t put more experienced interpreters on a pedestal. If you knew how often they stumbled getting to where they are now you’d realize it’s dangerous for them up there!
Notice how teachers say: “my student” when the Client excels, “our student” when she behaves, and “your student” when she doesn’t?
Technology you’ve never heard of discussed in full on tech-speak (perhaps with an accent). Then the Client gives that, “don’t worry, I understand” nod.
I know. It’s horrible. But on the bright side you will always remember how to spell Necrotizing Fasciitis.
(Fasciitis has the letter i twice in a row, but three times total. Three times, like in antibiotics)
There are appointments you can wing, in a pinch, but voicing for Shakespeare is not among them.
