in interpreting

An Anonymous Introduction

There are many reasons for starting this blog. I’m a Sign Language Interpreter in the UK and part of a profession that is currently experiencing many difficulties. We are faced with changing market forces, the long-standing ignorance of why interpreters are necessary and statutory organisations, whose main concern, in this current economic climate, is to cut costs rather than look at equality or value for money.
This blog seeks to address some of the misinformation about Sign Language Interpreting in the UK by giving interpreters a way to air their views publicly but anonymously. We are bound by a Code of Conduct in our day-to-day work. It is right that we are but sometimes we may feel we can not speak out. We can post on public forums but may leave ourselves open to criticism and personal attack. Interpreters Anonymous provides a way for people to post opinion pieces to air these conversations and opinions we wish to be made public without fear of recrimination.
