Interpret America Summit
October 30, 2017
Our primary goal with this year’s Summit is to spark a collaborative, results-oriented conversation between interpreters and those who hire them. We’ve all seen the disruption the rollout of remote interpreting platforms is having on working interpreters. But we also see the potential for highly positive outcomes for increased language access and expanded work opportunities for interpreters. The crucial missing piece we will focus on at InterpretAmerica 6 is best practices for remote interpreting.Our profession needs guidelines for the employers who put interpreters on remote platforms, for the interpreters who work on them and for the technology vendors who create them.
We have moved our Summit to October 30 in part to take advantage of the large convening of interpreting players that will take place in Washington, D.C. for the annual ATA conference, taking place between October 25-28, 2017.
