A Panel Discussion
This workshop brings together interpreters from across Austin and the surrounding area to share their experiences.
This panel session will focus on legal and court interpreting. The panelists have been chosen based of their expertise in a specific field and the years of experience interpreting in that field. Practical information will be shared regarding actual ethical dilemmas faced by interpreters in everyday settings. Participants, certified and precertified interpreters, will have an opportunity to engage with panelists, and each other, to work through these real ethical dilemmas.
