    • What is the difference between testing for viral RNA and testing for antibodies?
    • What is viral shedding?
    • What is a route of transmission?
    • What is immunity?

    Part 2 will focus on how to adapt to interpreting during the pandemic. We’ll talk about

    • Switching to remote modalities.
    • How to stay safe onsite assignments.
    • The value of different sorts of masks.
    • What hand hygiene to use in what setting.
    • How to react to the anxiety of staff, providers, patients, family members, and one's own interpreter scheduler
    • How to decide which assignments to take.
    Linda Golley has a background in direct patient care as well as in managing and training healthcare interpreters.

    Note taking for Healthcare Interpreters

    Note-taking is an essential skill for any interpreter – whether you’re interpreting at a medical appointment, a deposition, or a conference. In this 3-hour seminar, interpreters will be introduced to the fundamentals of note-taking and discuss how note-taking aids in accuracy and helps interpreters deal with various interpreting challenges – from long speech segments to delicate discussions. Interpreters will receive guidance on various approaches to note-taking and engage in multiple practice exercises to apply newly acquired knowledge and refine their note-taking skills.

    Who is teaching? Yuliya Speroff is a Russian-English CoreCHI™ and DSHS-certified healthcare interpreter. Yuliya first started interpreting 10 years ago in her hometown of Novosibirsk, Russia and has since interpreted in a variety of settings – from a fighter jet factory to a live brain surgery, and most recently at a number of hospitals in Seattle. Yuliya also holds an MA in Business Management and is certified as both an English and a Russian language instructor with more than 10 years of teaching experience. Yuliya’s The Medical Interpreter Blog focuses on providing medical interpreters with resources and information for continuous professional development.

    This event has been postponed due to public health concerns. We hope to reschedule for June.

    Save the date for NOTIS and Folio's third annual Translation Slam, pitting brave experienced translators in competition to defend their renderings of a short creative text. This year's Slam language is Finnish.

    A translation slam provides unique insight into all the decisions, big and small, that go into producing a well-translated text. Translators can explain their process and priorities, audience members can offer critiques and ask questions, and everyone will come away with more appreciation for the art of literary translation. Whether or not you read Finnish, this comparative approach to assessing a translation's quality and effectiveness will be eye-opening... and fun! All are welcome.

    This year NOTIS members Lola Rogers, Mia Spangenberg, and Jenni Salmi will battle over the best way to translate "A Short Literary Self-Portrait" by Pirkko Saisio (b. 1949), an esteemed playwright, actor, and author. She is a prominent figure on the Finnish cultural scene, and has won numerous literary awards, including the Finlandia Prize, Finland's most prestigious literary award. Amazingly, none of her work has yet appeared in English. This is a complex text that highlights Saisio's unique style - it's not quite verse or standard prose either, but it is spare and precise and features her unique brand of self-deprecatory humor. Read the Finnish original here.

    This year's Translation Slam will be moderated by Scandinavian and Nordic languages expert Elizabeth DeNoma, who will provide her perspective as an editor and publisher of English translations.

    The Northwest Literary Translators, part of the Northwest Translators and Interpreters Society, meet the third Thursdays of most months at Folio, the Seattle Athenaeum. For more information, join our Facebook group.

    Fundamentals of Healthcare Interpreting

    What is this?  This interactive seven-hour workshop is designed to provide both the veteran medical interpreter and the novice with a full overview of all of the essential protocols of the profession. When a medical interpreter walks into a patient encounter, everyone expects him/her to follow certain conventions and to know what to do in many difficult scenarios. We will introduce participants to all the skills necessary to facilitate communication in a patient encounter and to manage the ethical boundaries of the healthcare interpreter role. This is your chance to discuss the difficult situations that come up while you are interpreting! The workshop will focus on on-site interpreting and cover the following topics:

    • The Role of the Interpreter in Healthcare Settings.
    • Interpreter Ethics and Standards of Practice
    • Modes of Interpreting
    • Accuracy in Interpreting
    • Interpreting Protocols: Pre-session, Positioning, Use of first person, Intervening
    • How Culture Impacts Interpreting
    • Your Future: Professional Opportunities in the Interpreting Field

    The class will be taught in English with language-specific practice sessions. A library of interpreting resources will be on display during the workshop.

    Who is teaching?     Cindy Roat is a national consultant and trainer with 28 years’ experience in the healthcare interpreting field. With an MPH in International Health Services, Cindy has made significant contributions to the healthcare interpreting field in the areas of training, program development, policy formulation, advocacy and organizational outreach. Her written works are key resources for interpreters, providers and administrators alike. Cindy was the principal author of the original Bridging the Gap, and her most recent book, Healthcare Interpreting in Small Bites, is being used as an ancillary text at many basic training programs.

    Adapting to Remote Interpreting

    What is this? Interpreting is a challenging occupation, even when sitting together in a room with only two people talking to each other. In today’s world, however, the interpreter is often connected to the speakers remotely, that is, over the phone or over a video conference link. How does this change the interpreting dynamic? What new skills are needed? How can interpreters prepare to be a good remotely as they are in person?

    This 2-hour workshop will explore the differences between in-person and remote interpreting as well as the impact on role and confidentiality of remote interpreting. Hands-on exercises will help participants develop skills in:

    • Managing telephonic and video interpreting equipment to optimize video and audio input and output.
    • Interpreting without visual cues.
    • Managing introductions.
    • Managing the flow of a session without visual cues.
    • Dealing with unclear or overlapping speech.
    • Troubleshooting.

    Making the Tough Decisions
    A skills-building workshop
    on interpreter ethics in healthcare settings

    What is this?  The world of the healthcare interpreter is fraught with difficult ethical dilemmas and the need for making in-the-moment decisions. For example, if a patient asks that certain information not be interpreted, do you keep it confidential even if the non-disclosure may harm the patient? Do you interpret everything accurately even when the message could impact or destroy the patient-provider relationship? Do you withdraw from a medical encounter that is too complicated for you when that means the patient will get no interpreter at all? How is an interpreter to decide?

    This workshop will introduce experienced healthcare interpreters to a process for thinking about these difficult situations and for quickly making ethical decisions about what to do.

    The class will begin with a quick review of the National Code of Ethics for Interpreters in Health Care. Participants will then learn the ethical decision-making model included in the California Healthcare Interpreting Association’s Standards of Practice. Concrete examples will be used to show how to apply the model to real-life situations. Finally, participants will break up into small groups to consider specific ethical dilemmas. Groups will apply the CHIA model and come up with one or several acceptable responses to the dilemma. These will then be shared with the larger group for consideration and, if there is time, for further discussion.

    Interpreting for the Injured Worker

    More info and registration will be available soon!

    What is this? The purpose of this six-hour workshop is to help interpreters improve their knowledge of the terminology needed to accurately and successfully interpret for injured workers. This workshop will help healthcare interpreters as well as court interpreters who work in workers’ compensation cases and depositions.

    What you will learn:

    • Types of injures (specific, cumulative, stress-related, etc.);
    • The language of the worker (types of jobs, tasks, tools, machinery, etc.);
    • Comprehensive and detailed description of medical conditions resulting from work injuries: orthopedic (shoulder, elbow, wrist, hand, back disorders, knee, ankle), chronic pain, mental health disorders;
    • Types of treatment (PT, pain management, medications, psychological, FRP, etc.);
    • Overview of the workers’ compensation system (medical-legal evaluations, parties involved, disability rating, apportionment, C&R, MMI, stipulation, utilization review, etc.);
    • Interpreting in depositions for injured workers;
    • Challenges for interpreters and cultural considerations.

    This will be an interactive and engaging workshop. There will be ample opportunities to review specific vocabulary, scenarios, and practice consecutive interpretation though role-plays and mini-dialogues. Participants will receive glossaries and study materials to practice after the workshop.
