Workshop Leader

Sign language interpreters are increasingly requested to work into and from English as non-native speakers. A variety of suggested coping strategies will be discussed in order to match these demands. In addition, the training covers the following aspects in a combination of theory and practice:
  • Third language interpreting
  • Interpreting in international settings
  • Relay Interpreting
  • Team interpreting
  • Hands on practice

During the practice sessions participants will work from spoken English to German sign language and vice versa. Participants are requested to bring video material in their German Sign Language.

Participant’s profile

Participants are required to have extensive experience as a sign language interpreter in national settings and have worked in international settings as well. They should be confident in English (minimum of B2 level according to the CEFR framework) as an active and passive working language.
