Introduction to Sight Translation

5/5

$35.00

Sight Translation (ST) is an oral translation of a written text (Gile, 2000). Interpreters working at all levels (RPI, CPI, CI) may be asked to sight translate various documents during their interpreting assignments. This online module aims to provide interpreters with an understanding of the ST process and the challenges involved in producing a good sight translation. We will discuss the use of ST in community interpreting settings, including legal, health, education, and welfare. The ST module also aims to assist interpreters in developing skills for producing a sight translation that is faithful to the original and easy for the listener to follow in the target language. We will provide interpreters with ample opportunity to practise sight translation through exercises involving typical texts.
