and issues current in the Australian interpreting and translation
profession

Mary Vasilakakos
Language Experts

ISBN 978-0-9925873-2-1

This Australian publication is part of a series of training handbooks published


by Language Experts. It is an original material developed to provide the trainee
interpreter/translator a quality professional development program which covers
the fundamental and foundation professional principles, concepts, debates and
issues current in the Australian interpreting and translation profession in
general, and in interpreting and translation in health and medical settings in
particular.

This professional development training publication is designed to give trainees


a solid understanding of these principles, concepts, debates and issues, so that
they may confidently apply them to their professional day to day practice.

Professionals are often described as people who use their area of expertise to
make decisions about their clients. The purpose of the training is to give the
trainee the professional concepts and the thinking processes necessary to
confidently make such decisions, whether they are transfer decisions or
decisions about the multilayered relationships and dynamics involved in
interpreting situations.

The publication includes chapters on: Basic concepts and terminology defined
and explained; How does the Health System view the Interpreter and their
Skills and Competencies; The three-cornered situation paradigm; the
Professional role of the interpreter; The recipients of interpreting services and
the ethics of interpreting; Sample health dialogues and medical language and
Websites and Glossaries.

Mary Vasilakakos is a senior educator with over 25 years experience in


Higher Education teaching, curriculum development and course design. Her
fields of expertise are bilingual education in Translating and Interpreting,
Linguistics, English as a Second Language and English Language and
Literature. She is a foundation member in the field of bilingual education in
Translating and Interpreting in Australia, having worked in this field since its
inception in the late 1970s and early 1980s. Mary Vasilakakos is author of the
A Training Handbook for Legal and Court Interpreters in Australia, Language
Experts, 2015 and the co-author of the seminal textbook Liaison Interpreting,
a Handbook, MUP, 1996. She has also served on a wide variety of TAFE, Higher
Ed and NAATI committees. May Vasilakakos holds a BA Hons, MA Hons, Dip

I would just like to thank both of you, for the presence of energy, knowledge,
interesting issues, discussions and dynamic speakers that were there
throughout the course; all of which had certainly enhanced my personal PD
immensely. What made it even better was that I actually enjoyed myself! I
look forward to coming back for more in the future. Minh Minh Bui

I was most impressed with Silvanas delivery of her Note-Taking Skills


Professional Development course for Interpreters. She made the course
interesting and relevant for all involved, responding to all queries with her
considerable expertise, reinforcing existing skills and developing new ones. All
participants emerged satisfied and motivated to continue their self-
improvement. I would thoroughly recommend any of her courses.
