Hub Programme features BSL Interpreting

The Hub programme was broadcast featuring a section on interpreting with Jeff Brattan-Wilson of RAD’s Deaf Law Centre and author of this blog, Jennifer Smith, representing ASLI as their Communications Director.
The programme covered issues of outsourcing, standards, the Interpreters’ Code of Practice, the importance of having Court Interpreters who are sufficiently experienced in legal settings and the availability of NRCPD’s complaints system should Deaf people or associated professionals want to complain about a Registered Interpreter.
The programme aired on Monday 25th June and can be seen online at BSLBT’s website. The studio discussion was the second item on the programme. If you have any comments about the information covered in the programme you can leave a comment on this post.
