Interactive Seminar 2

This module will focus on the types of courts and tribunals Australian interpreters work in, how to prepare for court interpreting assignments, courtroom protocols and resources at our disposal.

Objectives

Over three weeks, we’ll be delivering an introduction to legal and court interpreting in three modules. Topics will cover an overview of the Australian legal system, and then focus on interpreting in police and courtroom settings.

Presenter

Silvia Martinez is a Certified Interpreter and Translator (Spanish<>English), who has concentrated her interpreting practice in conference and legal interpreting. She gained an appreciation of the challenges and requirements for interpreting in legal settings—and the skills—when she completed a Graduate Diploma in Interpreting and Translation at Western Sydney University in 2001. She also worked as research assistant to Professor Sandra Hale on the project that led to Interpreter Policies, Practices and Protocols in Australian Courts and Tribunals, published in 2011 by the Australasian Institute of Judicial Administration, and which laid important groundwork for the development of the JCCD’s Recommended National Standards for Working with Interpreters in Courts and Tribunals.

Silvia works on a freelance and casual employment basis, both with private clients and through agencies contracted to provide interpreting services in courts and tribunals. She frequently works in the NSW criminal jurisdiction as court-appointed interpreter through Multicultural NSW and through the same agency, at NSW Police interviews. And she is, of course, a member of AUSIT and of Translators and Interpreters Australia (Professionals Australia).
