Hallo, hier ist LangFM, der Podcast über Sprache und was man so alles damit anstellen kann. Ihr hört Folge 2 einer dreiteiligen Miniserie über das Gebärdensprachdolmetschen. Nachdem wir uns in der ersten Folge vor allem in Schottland umgeschaut haben, geht es diesmal nach Deutschland.
This episode is part of a mini-series on sign language interpreting, a topic I have become increasingly fascinated by in recent years. In the same time, sign language interpreting has moved more into public awareness, including within our profession. AIIC, the international association of conference interpreters, now has members working with sign language. The European Parliament has become involved, as you heard in episode 28 of LangFM, about the EUsigns conference. And more and more countries are upgrading the status of their national sign languages.
Introducing Lisa Cavanagh, a conference interpreter based in Galway, Ireland. In this guest post, she takes us on a trip to Strasbourg, where she attended the 2018 European Youth Event as a volunteer interpreter.
