A few days ago, we posted the first part of my interview with Robyn Dean, sign language interpreter and researcher. This week, in the second part, we talk about whether research is any use to practicing professionals and why even busy professionals can help shape the future of their profession.
The recent controversy over the Ministry of Justice interpreting contract has brought to the fore just how much interpreting suffers from a lack of status. In this two part interview with sign language interpreter and researcher, Robyn Dean, I had the chance to discuss with her how her work on interpreter ethics might help strengthen the profession. Today, in part I, we discuss her background and the need for interpreters to learn from the way that medical practitioners are trained.
Watch out next week for an exciting post on interpreter ethics.
