USEFUL RESOURCES

Working with an In-Person Interpreter

Plan ahead

Consider your language needs from the start of your planning process, qualified interpreters may not always be available on a short notice and some logistical coordination may be required. 

Provide references

When available, provide reference information, such as topic for discussion, meeting agenda, related documents or forms, presentation slides and notes, and key proper names. 

Brief the interpreter

Whenever possible, briefly share essential information before the meeting begins, especially information that may be relevant to the linguistic and/or logistical aspects of the encounter. 

Allow regular breaks

During longer sessions, let the interpreter take breaks to avoid mental fatigue. For simultaneous, ensure a team of at least two interpreters is available for each language combination.
