Workshop Description
Have you wondered what cruise interpreting work and ethics look like? Have you wondered if interpreting agencies are using best practice for standards that protect you and the passenger during the cruise? And lastly, are you interested in what are the physical demands of cruise interpreting and the expectations of the interpreter’s conduct during cruise port to port? This is an in-depth workshop about research on Cruise Interpreting standards from the last few years to promote awareness in how NAD-RID CPC guides the ethical decision-making involving cruise work.

Educational Objectives

A. Participants will use strategic knowledge by:
     1) Analyzing English text questions and creating equivalent ASL question phrases via sight-translation.
2) Analyzing ASL question phrases and create reiterative ASL answers in response.

B. Participants will evaluate and analyze:
1) how others may have different interpretations and discuss the similarities of the message within the interpretations as needed.
2) find coherence in how space is used to organize academic content.
