Working with Trained Interpreters

Service providers in different fields encounter clients who have limited English proficiency. Such providers must provide services that are mediated by spoken language interpreters and communicating through an interpreter adds a completely different dimension and complexities to such encounters. This course introduces the framework of the interpreting task, the interpreter?s role, code of ethics, and standards of practice. Topics include disparities in service provision, their effects on culturally diverse and limited-English proficient clients, and legislation related to interpreting and translation services.
