Location: Faribault Middle School 704 17th Street SW, Faribault MN 55021 Room A100

Description: Target Audience:

Interpreters working or seeking to expand their work in educational settings

Workshop/Course Description:

Voice interpreting can be challenging especially when a deaf person uses a lot of non manual markers, gestures and facial expressions that don’t have a “word” or a “glossed sign” for the interpreter to use. This workshop will help interpreters working towards certification learn how to let go of word/sign translations, voicing fragmented sentences and to focusing more on meaning, smooth transitions, reading facial expressions, body language and giving the complete meaning of what a deaf person is conveying. This workshop will also address strategies for picking up fingerspelled words and numbers, using fillers for transitions and expanding on the message.

This workshop is open to all levels of interpreters.

Educational Objectives:

Practice word choices for facial expressions, non manual markers, gestures, etc.. that don’t have a “sign” or “glossed word”.
Share and practice strategies to let go of word/sign translations and go for meaning.
Practice producing an interpretation with complete English sentences and incorporating smooth transitions, language expansions and use of fillers to keep the language and message flowing.
