ATA Conference – Translation at Medical Interpreting Appointments (025)
October 25, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm| $540 – $915
The American Translators Association conference is in New Orleans, from October 24 to 27. I am copresenting with Tina Peña on Translation at medical interpreting appointments.
Does this really happen? If so, what’s going on? In 2016 and 2017, the national medical interpreting certification boards surveyed interpreters about their work and asked how much translation they did as part of their responsibilities as health care interpreters. This session will cover a comparison of the results and an analysis of the 808 detailed answers obtained from the Certification Commission for Healthcare Interpreters. This session will give interpreters, translators, health care providers, language access managers, and trainers an empirical picture of translation in the medical field. There will be an opportunity to discuss the next steps that should be taken.
