"Flexibility in ASL-to-English Interpreting"
Description: An accurate and equivalent interpretation is more than just selecting the correct words. How can we make our ASL-to-English interpretations sound more dynamic and native for a variety of clients? How do we feel more confident in our ability to interpret into English? This workshop explores how register can be used to increase both accuracy and equivalence in English interpretations, as well as build confidence in our own abilities. We will discuss what register is, how it is used in spoken English, and learn strategies to develop flexibility in ASL-to-English interpreting.
