Webinar: Anatomy of a Deposition and How to Master This Niche
By Elena Langdon
Intended for experienced interpreters who want to branch out to a new area, this one-hour webinar will outline the procedures, expectations, and nuances of interpreting during a deposition or similar hearing. We will cover videoconferencing, how to make fast friends with the court reporter, dealing with "immigrant speak," and logistics. Preparation (and survival) strategies, vocabulary, and dos and don'ts will also be addressed. Some examples will be given in Portuguese, but the presentation is open to all. Depositions can be tricky; after this session you will feel more prepared and confident to tackle a new interpreting environment.
