Introduction To Spanish/English Interpreting

Introduction To Spanish/English Interpreting

Course Number: 

This course introduces students who are speakers of both English and Spanish to the theory and practice of professional interpretation. It will include readings on the history and current trends within Interpreting Studies, an exploration of the ethics of interpreting practice among the different professional areas, units on each of the major fields of specialization within the profession: healthcare/medical interpreting, legal/court interpreting, and conference interpreting. There will be opportunities for students to interact personally with professional interpreters currently working in these areas. The course will also present opportunities to develop skills through practical exercises in the three different modes of language interpreting: consecutive, simultaneous and sight translation. The primary language of instruction in the class will be Spanish, although the nature of the subject will frequently warrant the use of English as well as Spanish in both class and online settings.
