Event description
Learn how to work successfully with an interpreter to ensure effective communication for all parties

About this event

It is not easy to communicate effectively, and it becomes even more difficult when you have to communicate with those who speak a different language.

Who will benefit from this webinar:

As our societies become more diverse, multicultural and multilingual, we come into contact with non-native speakers more often. Whether you work in international business or social services, healthcare, education, and so on, you probably work with people from different cultures, and this often requires the help of an interpreter.

In this webinar we will teach you how to get the best out of your work with an interpreter, ensuring that all parties feel that they have communicated effectively and successfully.

You will learn:

  • How interpreting works and what types of interpreting can be used during communication
  • Your expectations vs the reality of interpreting
  • Interpreters' impartiality and transparency rule and how it impacts the communication
  • How to commence, conduct and conclude an interpreting session
  • Cultural mediation by the interpreter: what are the rules and boundaries?
  • Sensitive situations and how to deal with them (e.g. taboo subjects, privacy concerns, cultural limitations, etc.)
  • How to deal with the interpreter's requests to repeat, clarify or simplify your message
  • What to do if you feel your message is not passed on accurately and/or fully
  • Sight interpreting
  • And much more!

The webinar outcomes for you:

After the webinar, you will feel much more confident and competent any time you find yourself working with an interpreter. This will help create a more relaxed and natural atmosphere during the interpreting session and make your communication more effective. And effective communication, as we all know very well, is crucial for success in whatever you do.
