Community interpreting - I need your help :)
Thread poster: Herbina

I'm looking for people who had experiences with this kind of interpreting, either as interpreters or as those who needed help in this field at some stage of their lives themselves.

“Community interpreting is a specific type of interpreting service which is found more in community-based than organisational situations. It is a particularly vital service in communities with large numbers of ethnic minorities, enabling those minorities to access services where, due to the language barrier, they would otherwise find it difficult. Situations where such interpreters are necessary are typical include medical, educational, housing, social security and legal areas.”

And these are the surveys – the former one is for the interpreters, the latter one for those who needed their help themselves back in the past.

I would be very grateful to you. Thank you in advance. The results will be used by me while writing my master's thesis.
