We are excited to invite you to our upcoming event titled “Translation and Interpreting in Indigenous Languages: Career Opportunities for the Community”, which will take place on April 21 afternoon and 22 morning at The Language Center in downtown New Brunswick. The event is an initiative of The Language Bank and is possible thanks to an IDEA Innovation Grant and aims to raise awareness about the importance of providing access to careers in translation and interpreting and creating appropriate resources for indigenous, endangered, and minority languages, with a particular emphasis on calling for the participation of the community.
We are honored to have an impressive line-up of speakers who are experts in the field, and they will share their experiences and knowledge with the attendees. The speakers include:
Daniel Kaufman, Endangered Language Alliance Eleanor Castillo Bullock, GAMAE International Inc. Karola Ranger, Interpreter, NJ Courts Charles Häberl, Professor, AMESALL, Rutgers Laura Ramírez Polo, Assistant Teaching Professor, Spanish and Portuguese, The Language Bank, Rutgers Shaheen Parveen, Assistant Teaching Professor, AMESALL, Rutgers
