How to Work with an Interpreter
A free webinar presented by Wendy Pease, President of Rapport International.
By: Rapport International
This webinar, will teach you what you can expect from your interpreter and how you can get what you need from the interaction. You'll learn how to effectively work with an interpreter, so your message stays intact. For example, have you ever had a situation where a client/patient and the interpreter talk for 5 minutes and then the interpreter turns to you and says, "she said yes"? Clearly that's not all the client/patient said, in this webinar Wendy will explain why this shouldn't happen and what to do if it does. Also, did you know there is a correct way to position yourself, the client/patient and the interpreter in your room/office?
Other topics to be covered include:
· The dangers of having an unqualified person interpret
· Learn how to communicate and what to do if it's not working
· Professional ethics of interpreters
· How to handle difficult language and situations
This webinar is appropriate for any industry that uses interpreters, as well as people new or experienced with interpreting. Sign up today to tune in on Tuesday August 14, 2018 at 12pm EDT.
