Event description
Learn to provide high-quality professional service in this challenging setting, while protecting your own wellbeing. 2 classes 13 & 20 Oct.

About this event

This CPD-certified training is aimed at interpreters who undertake interpreting assignments involving victims of sexual violence. The training is offered thanks to the EU *INHeRE project.

Please note that the training is conducted in the ENGLISH language.

This training will help you to:

  • Understand the unique challenges and cultural implications of interpreting for victims of sexual violence;
  • Learn the fundamental principles of effective interpreting during face-to-face and a remote video session (VRI);
  • Understand the background of sexual violence in MAR context (MAR = migrants, applicants for international protection and refugees);
  • Learn ways to look after yourself to prevent or deal with vicarious trauma;
  • Practice interpreting for victims of sexual violence during roleplays based on real-life cases (roleplays and relevant information will be provided in advance);
  • Have an opportunity to receive constructive feedback from your colleagues;
  • Learn where to find information on relevant vocabulary and terminology.

Training Structure

This training programme consists of two sessions, each lasting two hours:

  • Module 1, Theory - October 13, 2021
  • Module 2, Practice - October 20, 2021

All traning is conducted in the English language. During Module 2 (Practical Training), participants are split into 4 groups according to their chosen working language:

  • Group 1: French / English
  • Group 2: Russian / English
  • Group3: Spanish / English
  • Group 4: Mixed group (non-language-specific)


It is strongly recommended that you access the training from a laptop, a PC or a tablet (rather than a cellphone). Headsets are also recommended to ensure a reasonable quality of sound during your roleplay performance.

A video camera is mandatory for Module 2 training due to its nature (practicing VRI - video-remote interpreting).


Upon successful completion of either one or two training modules, you will receive TRANSLIT's Certificate of Attendance.

You will receive an official CPD UK certificate awarding 4 CPD/CPE points if you successfully complete both training modules.
