Interpreter and Translator in Education Workshops
INTERPRETER AND TRANSLATOR IN EDUCATION WORKSHOP SERIES
Since 2018, the Translation Center offers a multi-part workshop series for interpreters and translators in education. The recommended series is six workshops with an additional workshop for district and school administrators and leaders. However, the series can be customized to meet district and school budgets and needs. The workshops are led by UMass Amherst faculty and professional interpreters and translators with notable experience in the school setting. UMass Amherst graduate students provide workshop management and instruction support. The workshop series is usually offered on demand, remotely or in-person. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Translation Center also provides individual workshops as professional development opportunities for individuals who have successfully completed the workshop series and for professional interpreters and translators. We provide professional development opportunities and consultation services for anyone in a school district interested in knowing more about language access plans.
