Event description

Description

As a thank you to all the SASLI and ASLI members who have mentored Heriot-Watt University students, Jemina Napier is offering a free CPD training workshop at Heriot-Watt University.

The workshop will be open to any interpreter that is a member of ASLI UK or SASLI, but priority will be given to those that have mentored HWU students. The maximum number of places is 20.

This workshop explores some of the challenges of working from BSL into English, including how to deal with “ums and errs”, fingerspelling reception and the use of idiomatic language. Drawing on theories of functional equivalence, participants will discuss challenges, watch and analyse BSL texts and discuss potential English strategies and equivalents.
