Workshop Description:

This workshop is designed to educate interpreters who have not been exposed
to certain areas of language that are sometimes thought of as taboo. Ways to
use appropriate sex vocabulary is not something that is taught or often seen
unless you are apart of this tight net community and culture. There are
signs and English phrasing that are specific to this content. The
participants will get acquainted with the signs being used in the Deaf
community and then will be matching these with appropriate use of English in
a professional register. Once these tools have been taught the participants
will be more able to adapt to these different interpreting settings. This
workshop is designed to be as open as possible and it will bring a wealth of
knowledge from the Deaf and interpreting perspectives. This will strengthen
our interpreters by easing them into the use of this type of language. This
will be a fun and enlightening experience with those who attend. The
workshop includes with a one-hour lunch break. For further assistance,
