Testimonials from previous ISL attendees: 

Kristina McTaggart – “Interpreting for Children’s Services” – Sobrina was amazing during both seminars, she presented them perfectly and very clear explanations have been given. The seminars were very informative, interesting and useful not only for the interpreters who are the beginners in working with children services but also for those who are already working in that area.

Marina Paskaleva: “Interpreting for Children’s Services” – These CPDs gave me the knowledge and understanding of the business. I enjoyed each of them and have learnt many new things. I believe there are many interpreters with little or no experience like me and it would be nice to know that we can get practical advice from experienced interpreters via the CPDs!
