[trilingual-interpreters-of-il] WEBINAR: Best Practices in the World of VRI: Saturday, June 14, 2014
An Illinois Mano a Mano workshop
Best Practices in the World of VRI
Presented by: Arlene Narváez, CI, CT
Arlene Narváez, B.S., CI, CT works as a trilingual (ASL/ Spanish/English) interpreter in community and video settings with experience in both VRS and VRI. She has presented workshops at the regional and national level. In addition to working as an evaluator and interpreter trainer, she has previously served as Co-Chair for the Southern California RID Trilingual Committee and coordinated interpreters for Los Angeles Valley College. Currently she is a member of the NCIEC Trilingual Task Force.
This training will start with an overview of Video Interpreting, it will discuss the challenges and benefits of Video Remote Interpreting (VRI), and current best practices. The presenter will illustrate the difference between on-site interpreting and VRI. A Video Interpreter must understand the unique aspects of working via video, identify their professional needs, and identify the client's communication needs while approximating the on-site interpreter experience. Discussion will focus on the issues that impact the work and current best practices of Video Interpreting. Activities will focus on identifying issues, managing the video call, and include interactive practice.
