Call for Interpreter Team Shadowers

CALL FOR INTERPRETER TEAM ‘SHADOWERS’ FOR EFSLI CONFERENCE, MANCHESTER SEPT 2-4 SEPT 2022

 

The conference organising committee invite applicants* to express their interest in one of the three ‘shadowing’ opportunities at the efsli 2022 conference. Ideally, interpreters with several years post qualification experience who feel they are ready and interested in this type of conference work.

 

There will be two parallel teams comprising both deaf and non-deaf interpreters and in conjunction with captioners, the conference organizing committee and their volunteers as well as a dedicated interpreting team co-ordinator, Andy Carmichael.

 

The shadowers will meet the interpreting teams before and after the main programme as well as accompanying them as they provide both BSL>EN and IS>EN services at the conference.

 

Applicants must summarise their case in no more than 500 words (3 minutes signing) and indicate which of the two teams they wish to accompany.

 

Please register your interest in either BSL or written English to [email protected]
