Time for the seminar: DEAF INTERPRETERS IN EUROPE is getting near.
We have 70 participants registered from all over Europe. Altogether 18 countries are represented, which is really wonderful, because it will give us a unique opportunity to discuss the survey report with input from so many countries in Europe.
Among the participants are deaf interpreters, hearing interpreters, interpreter teachers, sign language linguists, researchers, media workers, representatives from deaf associations, sign language interpreter associations, interpreting and translation companies, tv-stations, as well as from European organizations such as EFSLI and EUD.
We are overwhelmed by the great interest in the seminar and we will do our best to live up to your expectations.
The survey report is being proofread at the moment and it will be forwarded to all participants in the beginning of next week along with the program and the list of participants.
For those of you who have registered for Deaf Pub we will see you on Sunday October 30th at 19:00 for a cozy and informal get-together in the café of the old Deaf Association in Copenhagen. The café is placed on the ground floor. The program is quite informal, but - as mentioned before - Asger Bergmann will entertain us with a few anecdotes from his life. There will also be an optional “guided tour” around the old house and a peak into the museum for those who are interested.
The seminar on Monday October 31st takes place in the same house -– but on the first floor. At the seminar we will have sign language interpreting between spoken English and IS. You can find more details about the seminar program on www.deafinterpreters.eu
On behalf of the organizers we would like to say that we are looking so much forward to seeing you all here in Copenhagen, and we hope you will have a wonderful time.
