Interpreters work hard at performing their interpretations for everyday conversations and assignments, but what happens when it is time to voice in a higher register for a presentation or a lecture? In this workshop, we are going to take a dive into what all goes into adequately prepare for higher register voicing, focusing on situation appropriate affect, constructing an equivalent message for hearing consumers and constructing appropriate word and idiom choices.

Medical is a setting where interpreters are most frequently requested to provide services. This often leads to interpreters not preparing adequately due to their presumptive familiarity. Amy Lankheit will focus on common procedures, vocabulary, and best practices while interpreting for patients and providers. Amy will discuss the importance of interpreters owning a large arsenal of classifiers and their application to medical interpreting. HIPAA and its applications to interpreters will also be addressed.
