Are you an expert on Conference Interpreting?
Our Director, Lola Bendana, is writing a publication on Conference Interpreting in collaboration with Prof. Helen Campbell. The publication is being reviewed by 3 Conference Interpreting experts: Ms. Izabel Arocha, Prof. Andrew Clifford and Mr. Jacques Roland.
The publication is titled "How to get it right when contracting Conference Interpreting services. All you need to know"If you are a Conference Interpreter, ISP, trainer or purchaser of services and would like to share some of your insights, please contact us. 
The document will be freely available by the end of the summer. 

As an artist of words and theatre, it is possible that Shakespeare would find the YouTube video of Hamlet by Google Translate amusing. If he were alive today, what would he say? Would a media scandal and lawsuits arise from the quirky Hamlet version?

"This workshop will have presentations related to the most common health issues, interspersed with practical in-class exercises. Includes a section on challenges in the health care field, such as working in the mental health setting."
