WEBSHOP: Interpreting for the Injured Worker

Trainer: Judit Marin

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

What you will learn:

  • Types of injuries (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, chronic pain, mental health disorders, etc.
  • Types of treatment (conservative, minimally invasive and invasive).
  • Interpreting for injured workers during COVID-19 (strategies for successful remote interpreting).
  • Overview of the workers’ compensation system (medical-legal evaluations, parties involved, disability rating, apportionment, C&R, MMI, stipulation, etc.).
  • Depositions for injured workers (depo preps and depo reviews).
  • Challenges for interpreters and cultural considerations

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

An Interactive Webshop

What is a webshop? A webshop is just like an interactive onsite class, but held online through Zoom. During a webshop, you can ask questions and engage in discussion. You may be divided into “break-out” rooms where you’ll be working with other participants on exercises or on practicing a skill. There may be quizzes and polls. So, while there may be some PowerPoint and lecture, this is not like your typical webinar. Your full attention and participation is expected; that’s what makes it fun!
