Interpreting Workshop
Accuracy in legal interpreting
10 PD points (under Section 1.1 of the Revalidation Catalogue)
Tuesday 17 January 2017


Dear Firstname

Accuracy is one of the AUSIT Code of Ethics’ principle ethical requirements for interpreters and translators. Most practitioners would also agree that this is their primary responsibility. However, the concept of accuracy is a complex one which is often ‘interpreted’ in many different ways.

In this workshop we will review the concept of accuracy in the legal context. Accuracy is paramount in legal interpreting and it is an important principle that makes possible the fair administration of justice in police interviews and the courtroom (among others). We will explore police interrogation techniques and the taxonomy of courtroom questions in order to analyse the impact accuracy has in the translated discourse regarding legal outcomes

A light dinner will be served after the workshop
