Interpreters are often asked to translate -- even though interpreting and translation are separate professions with distinct skill sets and credentials. Learn the translation basics with this foundation workshop and start applying them to your work today!

This one-day training is aimed at Spanish community interpreters who want to develop basic translation skills and better navigate typical requests for translation they frequently encounter in their workplace.

Participants in this hands-on workshop will explore the translation process and learn about professional tools for translation, revision and research. More specifically, participants will be able to:

  • Identify the types of materials that are safe to translate by community translators.

  • Assess the risks and legal implications of machine translation.

  • Apply basic techniques to the translation and revision of documents commonly seen in community services, using tools designed for professionals.

The training includes varied practical, skills-based activities done in pairs and small groups. Participants will learn tips of the trade and take home professionally-designed reference materials and checklists for later reference and further exploration.
