Contextual Settings:Educational Interpreting
3 Credit Hours
Educational interpreters (K-12 to post-secondary) work in several settings that extend beyond a classroom or lecture hall. Course content includes an overview of professionalism, ethics, credentialing, equivalent message, vocabulary, register choice, linguistic adaptations, and other industry standards related to this specialized setting. Additionally, students will practice interpreting (sight translations; consecutive and simultaneous interpreting/transliterating) and evaluate the quality of the message.
