Interpreting for the Police, presented by Mark Lewis

ISL are proud to host our series of online events, welcoming professionals who are KEY to the INTERPRETING INDUSTRY.

Our most recent guest was Mark Lewis, National Police Contract Manager for Language Services (Leicestershire Police). This session focused on ‘Interpreting for the Police – Do’s and Don’ts’.

It was aimed at all interpreters who are working or planning to work for the Police.

We discussed:

the key do’s and don’ts of police interpreting,
staying safe on social media in relation to your interpreting activities,
and the changes that PAIT has brought in when it comes to interpreting procedures and processes.
