“What’s the Point?: Understanding the Message, Speaker Intent, and Making Appropriate Semantic Choices” video conference/workshop which is open to educational interpreters, TODs, generalist interpreters, and interpreting students. The presenter will be Frances J. Beaurivage, Manager of the EIPA Diagnostic Center and RID CI/CT.

This training will guide participants through a series of steps that will result in a deeper understanding of the speaker’s intent. The goal is to help interpreters change their approach to the interpreting process, which will result in interpretations that more clearly convey the speaker’s implied intent. When we understand the speaker’s intentions we can then ensure that sign selections are semantically appropriate.

Cost is $25 for in-state interpreters/TODs/students and $50 for out-of-state interpreters/TODs/students and lunch is included. There is a 3% charge for using a debit/credit card. RID CEUs are available (0.4) for a $5 fee payable on the day of the workshop.
