Gain insight and training from translation and interpreting experts in the medical field; participate in discussions and practical exercises to overcome the unique challenges when translating for the healthcare consumer—using the appropriate register, protecting patient rights, following government regulations; learn to walk the thin line in the triadic encounter by finding the cultural competency model that fits you, learning when to be a culture broker, and sharpening your transparency skills.

Schedule for Saturday, July 10:
The American Translators Association
will provide a full day of in-depth sessions, including a continental breakfast in the morning, a Job Marketplace, and a Networking Session following the final presentation.
