A conversation between interpreters and Tribunal members
This Symposium will offer a forum for open discussion between interpreters and tribunal members, with the aim to improve mutual understanding and interprofessional relations in order to provide a better service. The themes will include the different tribunals’ specific needs when working with interpreters, the challenges experienced by interpreters when working in tribunals and the role of other relevant stakeholders. Suggestions on how each party can help to facilitate effective communication will be discussed in light of the Recommended National Standards for Working with Interpreters in Courts and Tribunals. A Panel comprising representatives from different tribunals, interpreting practitioners and language service providers will share their experiences, followed by a Q&A session.
