How to Work with Interpreters Training - Oct. 4
The Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape (PCAR) is holding a free training entitled How to Work with Interpreters on October 4, 2018 from 8:30 AM-4:30 PM at 2101 N Front Street, Governor's Plaza North, Bldg #2, Harrisburg, PA 17110.
The training is intended for court personnel, judges, victim advocates, law enforcement, prosecutors, SANEs, and allied professionals. This free, full-day training educates court personnel and service providers to work effectively with interpreters to assist survivors of interpersonal violence and other crimes.
The interactive workshop also includes a brief introduction to language access laws, and is ideal for professionals who work with interpreters - or would like to learn more about how to work with interpreters - to help serve their clients and constituents.
The program will be presented by Marjory Bancroft, the founder and Director of Cross-Cultural Communications (CCC), the only national training agency for community, legal and medical interpreting with more than 290 licensed trainers in 37 U.S. states, Washington, DC, Guam and six other countries.
She holds a BA and MA in French linguistics from Quebec City and advanced language certificates from universities in Spain, Germany, and Jordan. She has lived in eight countries and studied seven languages. In addition to interpreting, Marjory has taught translation, English and French for universities in Canada and Jordan; immigrant schools; continuing education; and the Canadian Embassy in Washington, DC.
For three years she managed a nonprofit language service of 200 interpreters and translators. The lead author of the field’s only comprehensive textbooks, she has also authored or co-authored numerous training manuals, trainer guides and other publications.
She speaks and keynotes widely at conferences across the U.S. and abroad, has sat on national and international committees and was the world Project Leader for an ISO International Standard on interpreting.
Deadline for registration is September 28, 2018.
