Does anyone know of a good, but more importantly concise, online French to English immigration glossary? I would like to print one off that I could easily refer to, if necessary, in a liaison interpreting context. Thanks for your help. Mari

glossary from the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada Aug 13, 2007

Hi Mari,

Not sure if this is exactly what you are looking for, but it might help. Here is one from the Immigration and Refugee Board of Canada http://www.irb-cisr.gc.ca/fr/ausujet/publications/interprete/gloss_f.htm

Best regards,

Christine

My immediate reaction was: "You'll be lucky!".

I do a fair amount of interpreting for the Home Office and have to carry a glossary around in my head!

Anyway, I've done a bit of research, and there is one, though it is published by the Canadians, but it could be useful.

There is a short Spanish - English glossary too:

Should I find anything else, will forward!

Hello again

You're very welcome for the help! I know what it's like going in empty-handed, as I've done it a fair few times in my job!

By the way, the Immigration officials tend to stick to the script so they are very good to work with! Also, the people I have come across are helpful should you get stuck/anxious/confused! Be honest with them and they will be kind to you!

Don't be afraid and I am sure you'll enjoy it and they will appreciate your help!

Best of luck tomorrow!

Liz

Hi Liz

That's really nice of you to say so. I am a bit nervous about tomorrow as I've never done any official interpreting work before, but I feel a bit more reassured after reading your kind words.

Best wishes

Mari
