NIEC Interpreter Practitioner Focus Group Reports Published
Five Groups of Interpreters Reflect on Interpreter Education
The National Interpreter Education Center (NIEC) is pleased to share reports of five interpreter focus groups conducted in 2016.  These reports outline challenges faced by interpreters working in our field today and their experiences in interpreter education programs.  Interpreters and educators alike will find these reports provide unique perspectives that reflect the changing dynamics facing us today.
Links to each report are provided below:
These will be the final publications prepared by the NIEC as our federal funding ended as of September 30, 2016.  It has been our mission to explore the state of the art of interpreting and offer resources to practitioners and educators since 2005.  We hope that these reports will provide insight into the current challenges facing many interpreters and foster new approaches for the future.
Best wishes for the New Year!
