"Interpreting culture: The cultural work of professional medical interpreters"

Izabel E. T. de V. Souza, Ph.D., English-Spanish interpreter and interpreter educator


In this workshop, Dr. Souza will help participants identify all the activities that are within the medical interpreter’s scope of practice, with respect to addressing cultural issues. You will learn about the challenges, disadvantages, advantages, timing, scope, limitations, and other aspects of addressing cultural issues as a medical interpreter. Dr. Souza will also discuss the latest interpreting research theories related to addressing culture while interpreting.

"Specialization. The context unknown for translators in technical translations. Case study in the mining industry"

Nora Fiorini, M.A., English-Spanish translator

In this webinar, Nora Fiorini will use a case study in mining industry translation to examine issues of context and implicit knowledge. She will discuss the main pros and cons of specialization in translation in general, and for the mining industry in particular. Translation examples/vocabulary and mining theory will be provided. Participants will practice examples of English to Spanish mining texts.
