What Do Those
Interpreters Actually Do?
Fearful of court interpreting? Fear no more! Ben Hall, CSC NIC SC:L, will introduce participants to the field of court interpreting. Interpreters will
learn about the judicial systems and examine the role, function, ethics, safeguards, and challenges of interpreting in the courtroom. This seminar is
intended for the interpreter with no or very little experience working in legal settings. There is a place in the courtroom where interpreters can
venture to begin developing their courtroom competencies. This workshop points a way to start
     Discuss Ohio’s judicial system and the work interpreters do,
     Examine and compare the roles of interpreters,
     Identify and discuss interpreter interaction methods with litigants, attorneys, court personnel and judges,
     Gain an awareness and comfort level of the courtroom setting / professional demeanor,
     Develop an understanding of pro-fessional expectations and linguistic challenges for the interpreter working in the court,
     Identify possible options where interpreters new to legal interpreting but with good interpreting skills can consider as
    possible points of entry.
