This webinar is for interpreters and translators working in police settings.
Police interpreting and translating can be regarded as a sub-field of legal interpreting and translating. Although the ethical considerations in the police setting are largely in line with those in the broader field of legal interpreting and translating, careful attention is needed when working in this specialised field.
