CCHI has invited Natalya Mytareva, M.A., CoreCHI™, to present this free Continuing Education webinar. In this webinar, we clarify the concepts of register and dialect in the context of healthcare interpreting and their characteristics. Factors affecting the interpreter’s ability to maintain register as well as components of mastering this skill will be discussed. Importance and relevance of maintaining the speaker’s register in healthcare settings will be exemplified. In conclusion, participants will practice recognizing instances when maintaining the speaker’s register is critical for effective communication in a healthcare encounter. The webinar is presented in English.
CCHI has invited Mutaz Al Mudaris, CHI™-Arabic, to present this free Continuing Education webinar for Arabic interpreters. In this webinar, we explore together the following elements and find some answers to these questions: What is the difference between a dialect and an accent? How do they intersect with register? Can politics and social status interfere with defining a language, accent or dialect? How does this intertwine with Modern Standard Arabic (MSA), classical and colloquial Arabic? With 22 Arabic countries in North Africa, Middle East, the horn of Africa and the Indian Ocean, can we, healthcare interpreters, find a common ground, to adequately capture and convey what is being said? The webinar is presented in Arabic.
CCHI invited Maria Carla Faccini, CHI™-Spanish, and Dr. Adrienne D.
