Self-reflective practice is an invaluable way of critically analysing our own work as interpreting practitioners. Making this process an integral part of our profession allows interpreters to become critically aware of our strengths and areas of improvements by providing a conscious awareness and develop strategies to further hone our skills and strive for expertise in the interpreting field. This longitudinal case study has taken a preliminary investigation of a novice interpreter’s use and development of critical self-reflective practices over a duration of 3 months.
Considering the current access to ongoing mentorship, internships, and opportunities to engage in peer reflective practice sessions, some take home considerations are:
- Do novice interpreters have access to programs that support their development of these critical self-reflective skills?
- Are these skills being taught/practiced and embedded into interpreter training?
- How do we, as practitioners, talk about our reflections? Do we have a common understanding and language to express our reflections with each other?
- Next steps to encourage interpreting practitioners of all skill levels to engage in regular reflections to improve competence/expression of what our strengths are/how to better support each other on the job, and develop a more cohesive workforce.
