Signed Language Interpreting requires physical movement of the upper body (plus the support structures of the back and legs). An interpreter is at risk of physical injury - if the work is not done efficiently - which could lead to the end of one’s interpreting career. This workbook is designed to provide an overview for effective and efficient interpreting practices that will help you to provide interpreting services across a lifelong career. In short, read this text to learn how NOT to hurt yourself when you do your work.
