Seeking interpreters for research project on police interpreting

Posted on Posted in English posts, General

NAATI accredited Arabic, Chinese and Spanish professional interpreters wanted, June – July 2017, Sydney

interpreting research projectCharles Sturt University and The University of New South Wales are inviting NAATI accredited Arabic, Chinese and Spanish professional interpreters to participate in an interpreting research project about the effectiveness of interpreted communication in police interviews. At 2M we are pleased to show our support for this project and we encourage interpreters to participate.

Interpreters will be invited to attend a police interview. The interview will be scheduled at a mutually convenient time and they will be advised of the CBD venue if they decide to participate. The interview will last approximately 30 minutes and will be audio and video recorded for subsequent analysis.

Prior to the interview, the interpreter will be asked to answer a short questionnaire about their experience and qualifications. This will take about 10-15 minutes to complete. Following the interview, the interpreter will be asked to complete another short questionnaire about their impressions of the interview, and they will be debriefed.

Personal details will remain strictly confidential. Interpreters will not be identified in any subsequent publication of the results. Interpreters will receive a $100 Coles/Myer gift voucher for their participation.

Participation in the interpreting research counts towards NAATI revalidation for interpreters

The total participation time will be approximately one hour. Interpreters can count this activity towards their NAATI revalidation points, under section 5.7 of the catalogue, for 10 PD points.

If you are interested in participating in the project, or would like further information, please email nmartschuk@csu.edu.au with your contact number, specifying your interpreting language.

This study is conducted by Charles Sturt University and The University of New South Wales, and is funded by the US High-Value Detainee Interrogation Group. The chief researchers are Professor Jane Goodman-Delahunty, Professor Sandra Hale and Natalie Martschuk. The study has received ethics approval (CSU HREC H16164).
