    MATI 2020 Webinar Series - Los Marielitos: Interpreting the Voices of Cuban Refugees | recorded Thursday, August 20 | 7:30pm CT - 8:30pm CT

    In 1980, approximately 125,000 refugees fled Fidel Castro’s oppressive regime in Cuba from the Port of Mariel to seek political asylum in the United States. Fleeing from extreme economic strife as well as political and social unrest, this wave of Cuban immigrants would later become known as ‘los Marielitos’. Of the four military bases where these men, women, and children were placed until they were sponsored by local community members, over 14,000 were placed at Fort McCoy, near Sparta, Wisconsin.


    Forty years later, in October 2019, a joint initiative between the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and the La Crosse Public Library provided these former refugees with a platform to tell their stories as part of a traveling photo exhibit. In the effort to make the exhibit more accessible to Spanish speakers who are Limited English Proficient, this project incorporates oral histories which required transcription, translation, and several aspects of interpreting. The first objective of this webinar is to explore where the line between translation and interpreting blurs.


    Secondly, this presentation will examine the pros and cons of collaborating both as partners and within a larger web of project contributors. Furthermore, we will articulate the difficulties encountered in determining how to translate, while maintaining the linguistic style of several Mariel refugees' voices. Finally, this webinar will tackle the challenges of deciphering code-switching by examining real examples from the source material, and explore producing target materials in a specific dialect (in this case, Cuban Spanish).

    When it comes to technology, we are almost always quick to adopt but slow to adapt. This tendency to gravitate to the newest thing can expose us and make us vulnerable. If we do adapt to technology, we often find ourselves doing things out of habit because someone told us to, not because we know why.


    In the first half of this webinar, we will go over the basics of data storage, why large name cloud server providers might not be your best option for storing your data, the difference between a bit and a byte, and best practices for storing your own data including hosting your own cloud server.

    In the second half of the webinar, we will discuss encryption, hacking and password best practices

    Learn how information is encrypted, learn how encrypted information is decrypted, hacked, and how to select a truly secure password. Also learn what the most common passwords are and how to avoid them.

    Understanding cultural context is an essential part of an interpreter’s job. Indeed, the backdrop of a person's experience will affect his/her behavior, syntax choices and expectations in a communicative encounter. How, then, might interpreters deal with situations wherein they are not entirely familiar with the cultural background of all parties involved?


    One way may be by comparing the cultural dimensions of cultures by using Dr. Geert Hofstede’s 6D framework. While Hofstede's extensive study focuses on finding connections between cultural values and their effects on behaviors and beliefs in the workplace, these values can also be used to uncover the basis for behaviors, reactions, and speech patterns in countless situations. The six dimensions of this model include: power distance, individualism, masculinity, uncertainty avoidance, long term orientation, and indulgence. Since cultural context plays into nearly every interpretation scenario, this framework can be a starting point from which an interpreter can begin to understand the nuances of different cultures and how large underlying cultural themes can play into everyday life. 


    This webinar will touch on each of Hofstede’s cultural dimensions and introduce Hofstede Insights website. Participants will engage in interpreting scenario case-studies through the 6D framework, to see how communication by be linked to an individual’s cultural background. In essence, this webinar aims to mitigate some of the context issues that arise for interpreters as they navigate not only the cultural underpinnings of those they work for, but also the cultural communicative behaviors of interpreters themselves. The overall objective is that interpreters gain better skills for facilitating conversation in their daily work.

    According to The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), during an evaluation to determine whether a student has a disability, the school must use procedures that “are provided and administered in the child’s native language or other mode of communication and in the form most likely to yield accurate information on what the child knows and can do academically, developmentally, and functionally…” [CFR 300.304 (c) (ii)] It is imperative and ethical that interpreters working in the educational setting and collaborating with special education eligibility teams, take the steps necessary to prepare and understand the assessment process since interpretation and cultural factors may influence or possibly invalidate standard scores. This presentation will provide interpreters with an overview of common psychoeducational and speech pathology assessments used in the educational setting, the implications of working with an untrained interpreter, and questions that the interpreter must ask during a pre-consultation meeting. We will conclude our presentation with resources to prepare for this type of interpretation
    assignment and a glossary of terms commonly used in the special education evaluation process.

    Once the translation is finished, there is another important step: the proofreading. This step is unavoidable, whether it is our own translation or that of a colleague. Proofreading is an art, and it has to be practiced.


    There are different levels in the proofreading of a text. Grammar is to be considered at a first level. The consecutio temporum, the use of gerund, concordance, prepositions, the sentence structure, all these aspects have to be revised after the translation. The second level refers to Orthotypography, the visual aspect of the text. Punctuation marks, the use of capital letters, acronyms, the paragraph structure, and other features will be taken into account in this level. A third revision will lead us to check Coherence and Cohesion to sound natural and fluid. The use of pronouns, deictic elements, repetitions, conjunctions, are necessary to contribute to the coherence of a text. Fourth level deals with the use of proper words: sociolinguistics is a discipline that translators sometimes do not take into account; and how important it is to adequate our words to the specific situation!


    Translators need to rethink the final work after translating. This webinar will illustrate with different real examples and theory will appear with the practice applying the academic rules governing the orthographic, morpho-syntactic and lexico-semantic conventions.


    *This webinar will be lectured in Spanish with some references to English.*

    Dermatology is a field of study that is more than just skin infections or rashes. Did you know that according to MDedge Dermatology, one out of 172 Hispanics are at a lifetime risk of developing melanoma versus one out of 38 non-Hispanics? Moreover, the overall median age of melanoma diagnosis for male Hispanics is 61 years of age in contrast to female Hispanics at the median age of 52.
                   This webinar is intended to teach Spanish-English interpreters about the procedures, terms and definitions important to dermatology to aid them in interpreting encounters related to the skin. In this session, participants will first learn important information about the most common skin ailments that one may encounter during a dermatology session. To get a closer look at common skin disorders like eczema, psoriasis and different types of skin cancers we will first examine pictures that may require dermatological consultation, trying to guess at what ailment or disease we are observing. Once identified, we will further discuss the causes, potential treatments and common questions that come up in regular dermatology appointments.
                   Pamphlets will be provided to attendees in advance and will be referenced throughout the session with the objective of building vocabulary. In addition, we will look at a basic glossary of common dermatology terms and talk about ways to expand upon that resource. The overall objective of this informative and interactive webinar is to help interpreters become more familiar with the fascinating and intricate world of dermatology.

      Imagine interpreting for parent-teacher conferences at a local elementary school, having prepared what you thought to be helpful vocabulary, only to be bombarded with terms like “chill chair”, “chatterbox”, “benchmark”, and “word walls”. As a trained interpreter, using circumlocution, or a roundabout way to describe a concept, is a great tool for words as these.  However, is it possible to maintain the original register in addition to transmitting the intended message? The use of alliteration, assonance, consonance, repetition and rhymes is a common grammatical tool used in the English language when working with children. Not only does it make the subject matter more appealing, but the use of these ‘speech sounds’ is important to the learning process.  However, these educational tools are often lost in interpretation, allowing only part of the intended message to be delivered. Equally as important, the vocabulary encountered in paperwork and conferences involving Individualized Education Plans (IEP) or Behavioral Intervention Plans (BIP) can throw even a seasoned interpreter off-course. To continue lexicon-building and improve the skill set of sight translation, participants will work with quasi-legal terminology encountered in documents from school districts in Wisconsin. This webinar aims to explore the use of circumlocution in educational contexts, and provide participants with opportunities to expand both vocabulary and circumlocution skills. Finally, participants will attempt to create phrases in the target language that maintain the use of speech sounds.
