Community and healthcare interpreting is most often delivered in two ways, remotely or face-to-face.
Community and healthcare interpreting is most often delivered in two ways, remotely or face-to-face. One modality does not fit all situations and depending on the participants, one solution may be more effective than the other. Yet, what do you do when you realize the modality that is being leveraged isn’t effective? This is most often the case when remote interpreters are called rather than a face-to-face interpreter. This workshop will guide interpreters as well as language access stakeholders on how to determine when a face-to-face interpreter should be called, how to advocate for the best solution, and how to support stakeholders when arranging future interpreting services.
1. Identify when remote interpreting isn’t an effective modality.
2. Develop scripts to advocate for face to face interpreting.
3. Explore strategies and identify stakeholders for further education and partnership on appropriate use of remote interpreting.
ASLIS virtual workshops are NOT recorded for later viewing.
