BOSTON - Aug. 6, 2018 - PRLog -- When working with people who speak other languages, hand gestures can only communicate so much.  To truly understand what the person is saying, you need a qualified interpreter who can facilitate the conversation.  A professional interpreter has hours of training, follows industry ethics and knows how to handle difficult situations.  Not just any bi-lingual person can interpret, there are special skill needed and practices to follow to ensure an unbiased, accurate conversation between both parties.

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? Wendy will go over specific positioning to help your communication be more accurate when using an interpreter.

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.
