Are you deaf? Do you like the interpreting process? Interested in becoming a Certified Deaf Interpreter?

What things should a Deaf interpreter do to ensure high quality interpreting services? What kind of interpreting assignment is the Deaf interpreter qualified to perform? What study materials should the Deaf person study in preparation of testing for CDI certification? This track offers an in-depth exploration and practical experience in the application of these questions.

On Sunday afternoon, the participants would do practices on the interpreting skills including mirror interpreting, simultaneous interpreting, consecutive interpreting, and text interpreting with hearing interpreters using the mock scenarios.
