Workshop/Course Description:

This training is designed to help interpreters improve their Sign to Voice
interpreting skills by structured practice in a non-threatening
environment. The difference in comprehending a signed message and voicing
the message will be discussed. While participants will have an opportunity
to practice comprehending signed messages during the workshop, the focus
will be on accurate production of the message in spoken English. The
importance of using conventional English sentences in the right register
will be demonstrated by activities designed to emphasize the difference the
voice interpretation has on monolinguals and bilinguals. Voicing strategies
designed to help workshop participants convey the message in correct English
grammar & syntax, deliver a coherent message, and choose appropriate English
vocabulary and register will then be highlighted. Interpreters will work
with a variety of materials, in both small groups and in large group
settings, with the emphasis on improving ones skill, not on perfection.
Strategies that can be used independently will also be discussed so that
participants leave with a plan to continue developing their Sign-to-Voice
interpreting skills.
