The Interpreting and Translation in Education Workgroup
The ITE Workgroup is a group of individuals interested in professionalizing interpreters and translators in education. We seek to launch a national conversation to build momentum towards the creation of a formal process for creating ethics and standards for educational interpreters and translators.
On September 27, 2019, we held an inaugural conversation that was attended onsite and online. The event was hosted by the Orange County Office of Education during their 3rd Annual Interpreter and Translators Conference in Irvine, California. We had approximately 35 onsite attendees and 65 who attended virtually.
As a result of this meeting, there is a clear mandate to move forward with the goal of creating a formal effort to create national ethics and standards. The conversation is moving forward through the ITE Listserve and through interaction with this webpage.
