Sight translation is frequently used in the legal environment, for example, when reading a witness statement or a court order. It's normally the first step before learning the techniques of simultaneous interpreting. Students will receive an introduction to the three most common legal interpreting modes (consecutive interpreting, simultaneous interpreting, and sight translation), learn the techniques to be able to sight translate, and be able to practice those techniques using real documents. This course is approved for 12 CEUs with the Supreme Court of Nevada: Administrative Office of the Courts (AOC).
