Foundations of Interpreting Processes Workshop Scheduled for January 22-24, 2016 in Knoxville, Maryland


Workshop presented by Betty M. Colonomos

The first module of the series focuses on the theoretical and conceptual base of the Integrated Model of Interpreting (aka the Colonomos Model) in a low stress environment. The training offers specific language to discuss interpreting work. Practice opportunities will be provided from ASL to English.

Gain a deeper understanding of what it means to convey equivalent messages by working through graduated texts and activities beginning in consecutive mode and moving to simultaneous mode in latter session. Working on skills, such as text analysis, back translations and collaborative interpreting, in small group format, you will develop tools for understanding and improving your interpreting process. You will develop the language necessary to discuss the interpreting task with colleagues, using on-evaluative and non-judgmental language.

Foundations I requires some pre-knowledge and is appropriate for interpreters and advanced interpreting students (hearing & Deaf-parented). Participants will be awarded 1.3 CEUs in the Professional Studies category.
