Trends and the future of interpreting
Approaches and technologies used in signed language interpreting have steadily evolved over the past fifty years. New domains of intepreting have emerged while others have receded. What will interpreting look like in five years? Ten years? Twenty years? What skills and abilities will interpreters need to master to continue to provide efficacious work to deaf, hard-of-hearing, and hearing consumers of their work?
Here are some learning outcomes of which we might want to be aware:
- What technologies are shaping traditional interpreting settings?
- How is the social and professional position of participants changing how interpreters work?
- How is language exposure and social relationships of participants changing the interpreting event?
