If you’re an interpreter, a CSW or a Deaf professional who uses interpreters or CSWs – you may be interested in our Watch Your Language one-day conference at City Lit, Covent Garden, London.

The conference will be on THURSDAY 4th April 2013 (2 days before Deaf Day on Saturday 6th)…

We’ve a great line-up of conference speakers this year - Jemina Napier, Peter Llewellyn-Jones and Clara Allardyce.

The conference presentations are as follows:

Jemina Napier: ‘Interpreting competence and standards: whose competence, what competence and how?’
Peter Llewellyn-Jones: ‘How research is redefining the role of the interpreter’
Clara Allardyce: ‘The role of the Deaf interpreter’

The afternoon workshops are 1 hour 15 mins each, and there are two slots (each workshop is repeated), so you can choose to attend two.
The workshops on offer this year are:

Jemina Napier Making the right impact:
Collaborative strategies for deaf professionals and interpreters in producing quality voice-over

Clara Allardyce Translating for media & the level 6 diploma in Sign Language Translation
Thaisa Whistance Speaker reflection in job interviews
