Back-to-School: What You Need to Know Before Translating for Schools                              by Thomas Huffstetler

Abstract:

Translating in the education field is both a rewarding and challenging endeavor. With the changing local demographics, more and more schools are seeking quality translations to assist Limited English Proficient families with navigating schools in the U.S. In this workshop, attendees will be privy to:

  • The variety of formal and informal documents that are often requested,
  • An overview of documentation associated with Special Education Services,
  • The unique linguistic challenges presented to translators (from acronyms and graphic organizers to specialized terminology), as well as
  • Recommendations for how to work effectively with educators.

Tom Huffstetler is a career educator with over 25 years of experience working in local schools. Mr. Huffstetler started his career as a Spanish teacher and earned his Master’s in Teaching Languages from the University Southern Mississippi which provided him with an additional opportunity to study in Michoacán, México. After continuing his graduate studies in curriculum design and school administration, he served as the Senior Administrator for World Languages in the largest school district in North Carolina. For the past five years, he has worked as the Director of Translation and Interpretation Services in the Wake County Public School System, and most recently as an adjunct instructor for Durham Technical College.

Effective Editing into English: Strategies and Tips, with a focus on Medical Translation
by Michael Collins

Abstract:

This workshop will include a presentation on techniques and pitfalls to avoid in translations into English. The presenter will include a discussion of “verbing” as a useful technique for editing translations into English, and how to avoid “linguistic capture”. This will be followed by practical work sessions editing and critiquing actual translated texts from multiple fields. Extra focus will be on translations for/from the medical field, with a brief discussion of types of texts translators and editors are likely to see. No special knowledge in medical translation is required, and examples and working texts will be from multiple source languages into English.
