  Katty Kauffman  
From Court to Conference: 
What to Expect Now and in a Post COVID-19 World
Webinar Description:

This language-neutral session is designed to help working court interpreters devise strategies for making the transition to conference interpreting by identifying best practices and professional ethics demanded by colleagues, direct clients and conference organizers. The 90-minute session will introduce participants to the similarities and differences in the conference and court interpreting worlds and identify potential avenues for continuing education and professional development with a view toward working on the conference circuit. A special accent will be placed on best practices in the interpreting booth and team-interpreting on the conference market, both virtually (in the COVID 19 world) and in on-site environment.
