INTERPRETER’S CODE OF PROFESSIONAL ETHICS

CEAA # 12-0038 (3.6 CIE CREDITS)

This 3.0 hour, language-neutral workshop seeks to enhance the interpreter’s knowledge of the Code of Professional Ethics to enable him/her to better handle on-the-job ethical situations that may and do arise. Interpreters are constantly faced with challenging moments while fulfilling their duties in the legal setting: difficulties with proper register, slang, idiomatic expressions, obscenities, attorneys questioning the accuracy of the translation, and others.
