CAUTION: Police and interpreters talking - A dialogue between interpreters and the police

The aim of this Symposium is to examine the status of interpreting in police settings, discuss the interaction between police and interpreters, share concerns and discuss ways of improving interpreted communication. Our Panel discussion will allow police and interpreters to establish a direct dialogue with each other, explain their professional needs and expectations, and relate the highs and lows of working together. Improving the interpretation users’ and interpreters’ understanding of each other’s professional role and needs will lead to the development of a ‘best practice’ approach to working together in police settings.
