Auslan Interpreting Techniques - TRAN863

This unit will familiarise students with the broad context of interpreting theory. The unit also covers techniques of interpreting from English into Auslan, and from Auslan into English, focusing on monologic discourse. The online component explores theoretical aspects of interpreting, referring to both spoken and signed language interpreting literature and strategies, via readings, case studies and reflection on students' own practice. On-campus sessions apply theory to professional practice, helping students recognise factors that influence the effective use of different interpreting techniques in different contexts, as well as the decision making involved.
