A Two-Day Workshop for Community and Legal Interpreters

Simultaneous interpreting is a skill that many community interpreters increasingly need, especially in educational and faith-based settings. However, this specialized training does not currently exist outside of costly university degree programs.

Join us for an innovative, cutting-edge program that fills this gap in interpreter training – a simultaneous interpreting workshop specifically designed for community interpreting. Participants will practice using materials based on real-life settings such as: back-to-school nights at public schools; religious services; multi-person medical appointments (when more than one person starts speaking at the same time); and local government public forums.

This two-day workshop offered by CCC is delivered by James W. Plunkett, a nationally recognized federal court-certified interpreter from Lima, Peru.

Interpreters will learn how to use simultaneous interpreting equipment, prepare glossaries and evaluate their own performance. They will also receive feedback from the instructor and their fellow participants.

Please note that participants are required to bring their own headphones/earbuds and a voice recording device with enough memory capacity to record up to one hour. Voice recording devices may be: DVRs, mp3 recorders, smartphones or tablets.  If you do not have a voice recorder, we can recommend an affordable, easy-to-use device for you to purchase.

This program includes a certificate and is approved by the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters for 6 CCHI CE hours, by the International Medical Interpreters Association for 1.4 IMIA CEUs, by the Washington State Dept. of Social and Health Services for 2.8 DSHS CECs, by the Maryland Court Interpreter Program for 8 CE credits, by the Pennsylvania Interpreter Certification Program (ICP) for 12 CEUs and by the American Translators Association for 10 ATA CEPs.

From participants at our last training: 

Very engaging.  James [Plunkett] made everyone feel comfortable regardless of their experience.

Activities and exercises were challenging but not at all intimidating. 

[The] exercises forced me to break my fear of trying.

And from previous sessions: 

Very detailed presentation and packed with fully-prepared information, materials, samples and practice. 

Challenging, encouraging, powerful and inspirational. 

I will have more courage to accept simultaneous interpretation assignments.
