Don’t Stay Silent! Vocal Health for Interpreters

The interpreter’s voice is their instrument for connecting with clients and their livelihood within their profession. The increased demand for interpreters to work both remotely and/or in person has posed many challenges when trying to optimize the interpreting experience. Interpreters have few tools to care for their voice and prevent voice problems. Vocal health skills are necessary to perform interpreting work effectively. This session will focus on teaching: strategies on how the interpreter can protect their voice and prevent injury; ways to self-advocate; and share best care strategies to optimize voice during their interpreting work.

Webinar purpose:
  • Utilize strategies presented to teach interpreters how to protect and prevent vocal injuries

  • Interpreter advocacy skills for interpreter safety and that of their colleagues by being able to identify injuries and the potential of permanent vocal damage

  • Foster better working standards by sharing vocal health protection strategies with your trainer colleagues, leaders, and student interpreters
