Oregon Court Interpreter Cafe, Hosted by OSTI
w/ Special Guest Yasmin AlKashef, PhD
“How Unique is your Interpreting Style? A Study of Modes and Strategies”
Each individual interpreter adopts a set of strategies that formulate their unique style. This presentation focuses on these global and local strategies and highlights some of the findings from the presenter’s empirical study on how consistent an interpreter’s style can be in the simultaneous and consecutive modes. The aim is to reflect on our own performances and on possible implications for interpreter training and continued education.
(Note: This event is open to Oregon Certified and Registered Court Interpreters, OSTI Membership not required.)

Why: To socialize and check-in with our colleagues; to learn from each other and share our common experiences interpreting for the Oregon Courts during pandemic times; and—very importantly—to cut loose and socialize a little! These get-togethers will not be recorded, and are meant to foment solidarity amongst our colleagues when dealing with the various in-person, remote, and hybrid modalities of court interpreting. We can also chat about any issues that impact us in all aspects of court life. This is an ongoing event with varying hosts, an array of "set" and "loose" agendas, and guest speakers. Join us!
Hosts: Oregon Certified Court Interpreters John Wan, Jessica Dover, and Adrian Arias
