Whodunit: CSI Terminology for Court Interpreters - A workshop by Esther M. Navarro-Hall

Workshop cancelled due to minimum numbers not met

This workshop will provide some basic knowledge related to Crime Scene Investigation terminology. Court Interpreters will have the opportunity to become acquainted with this terminology in specialized situations. This workshop is language-specific (Spanish), for interpreters with intermediate to advanced skill levels. Participants will become familiar with different crime scene contexts as they pertain to their work as Court Interpreters. They will also practice sight translation and/or consecutive interpreting to help them acquire some basic terminology and to serve as preparation for further research in this field. In order to offer enough individual feedback, this workshop will be subdivided into small groups for practice. A short glossary related to Crime Scene Investigation and additional resources for future study will be provided at the end of the class.

There will be a 15-minute break with refreshments.
