Elephants in the room: equivalencies and interpreting as a loss process

23rd June 2018 @ 9:15 am - 4:30 pm

Ticket price £90.00, ASLI Members: £50.00 email Danielle Hansbury – westmidlands@asli.org.uk for your discount code.
Delivered by Darren Townsend-Hanscomb – suitable for Deaf and Hearing Interpreters
This day will be an exploration of some fundamental truths about interpreting, and
what this means for interpreting, and our individual practice as an interpreter.
Whilst equivalencies and loss are key underlying principles, these don’t seem to be discussed
or understood enough in our profession, to the detriment of our professional practice and
We’ll discuss the idea of interpreting as a loss process, and the nature of equivalence.
And then explore the impact of these in practice through exercises.
By the end of the workshop you will have:
  • Understood what it means that interpreting is a loss process.
  • Explored the concept of equivalence when interpreting.
  • Considered what loss and equivalence means for interpreting, and your individual                                  practice as an interpreter.
  • Had the opportunity to participate in exercises relevant to these concepts, exercise                                         that can be continued at home.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.  Please let Danielle know if you have any dietary requirements.  Please also let Danielle know of any communication access needs, such as BSL Interpreters.
