Location: Oregon Health Authority Transformation Center Conference Room, 421 SW Oak St., Suite 775, Portland, OR 97204.
This presentation is made possible thanks to the Oregon Health Authority generously providing the space.

Helen Eby, OSTI President, has been the Technical Contact for the Translation standard. She will explain how ASTM interpreting and translation standards can provide practical guidance and help set up projects to ensure effective budget use. Another member of the ASTM Translation team, a Portland based language services company owner, may participate in the presentation. This reflects the ASTM way, in which all stakeholders participate.

All stakeholders are welcome, in an effort to invite dialog about the needs of clients and other stakeholders as standards continue to be developed, and in an effort to help all stakeholders work effectively with interpreters and translators.

OSTI thanks the Oregon Health Authority for its generosity in allowing OSTI to use the Transformation Center for this event. Practical worksheets that the Interpreting Standard drafting team enthusiastically supported will be shared and made available.

This is a brown bag lunch event.

After the presentation, the worksheets and the PowerPoint will be made available as links to this blog post.
