State of Interpreting and Translation in Oregon

On Sunday, February 19, I was able to deliver a report to Senator Wyden at his Town Hall meeting in Eugene, Oregon.

This is the one-pager I wrote about the situation in Oregon.

Oregon and National Needs in Interpreting and Translation

I also gave him the following documents to look over. I hope he reads them!

Definitions of the roles of interpreters, translators, translator-transcribers and terminologists, endorsed by nine professional associations.

Why use certified, qualified interpreters and translators?

I expect to be able to continue this conversation with him in the future. Oregon needs this conversation to move forward.
