The adoption at last year’s AM of the best practices and interpreter got in touch to say that they were able to reliably inform a rather reluctant boss on the underlying reasons why one interpreter cannot do all the different jobs in the courtroom they said that having one external voice was very powerful and that they were able to backup a colleague.
Who was facing a difficult situation so it was really really great to know that the best practices have been used really positively already I’ve also heard of them being spotted in in courtroom during a trial and also being passed on to legal teams as well which is which is really good news as we would really really like to hear from any of you who have made use of the guidelines we’d really like to know your story is your feedback.
