Virtual Interpreting

October 17, 2020, SC RID will be hosting a virtual training.

The virtual meeting platform being used is Zoom.

Workshop Title:

"Virtual Interpreting - How to Prepare and Deliver Effectively"


This workshop will focus on the changing role of the interpreter using a virtual format. With the changing world, interpreters across the country have been forced to interpret online. This workshop will take a look at programs that have been successful in supporting interpreters. The challenges of teaming while using virtual formats will also be discussed. The participants will have the opportunity to interpret material and practice how to record and download their products and make them shareable. Interpreters will also discuss the impact of virtual learning on the clients we serve. Some of the programs discussed will include Zoom, Google Duo, QuickTime, and Loom. Others will be discussed as well.
