TRID Workshop with Bill Ross: "Incorporating Expansion Techniques in Your Interpreting"

Saturday, November 5, 2016 - 9:00am to 6:00pm
Holiday Inn Express, Brentwood
5566 Franklin Pike Circle
Brentwood, TN 37027
Additional Information: 

The language differences in American Sign Language and spoken English require that interpreters employ various expansion and compression techniques to achieve message equivalency.  Expansion techniques are
used in order to make implicit information in the source language more explicit in the target language.  If interpreters are unfamiliar with expansion techniques, the resulting work will demonstrate unnatural phrasing, incorrect grammatical structures, and errors in production. The goal of this workshop is to expose interpreters to various expansion techniques and apply, through practice 3-4, specified techniques found in American Sign Language
