Expanding Professional Borders.
About the brief.
A video training series for the MIRAS group on the role of public service interpreters. The series comprised 6 modules (each of approximately 20 minutes).
Each module explored a different aspect of the interpreter's role when working in public services (court room, hospital, school, asylum application centre etc.)
Two versions of the same fictionalised situation were presented. In the first, the interpreter makes a series of errors. The second version demonstrates good practice and shows viewers how professional public service interpreters should respond in complicated situations. Each video is accompanied by commentary from a MIRAS. researcher.
