About this event

This CPD-certified training is aimed at interpreters who undertake interpreting assignments involving victims of sexual violence. The training is based on materials offered by 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 violence, including sexual violence;
  • Learn the fundamental principles of effective interpreting during face-to-face and a remote video session (VRI);
  • 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.


It is strongly recommended that you access the training from a laptop, a PC or a tablet (rather than a cellphone). Headsets are recommended to ensure a reasonable quality of sound during the practical part of the training. We also strongly recommend that you jave a video camera as we will be practicing VRI - video-remote interpreting.


Upon successful completion of the training, you will receive TRANSLIT's Certificate of Attendance and a CPD UK certificate awarding 2 CPD/CPE points.
