Medical interpreters may have already learned a sufficient amount of medical interpreting theory, and have anywhere from some to extensive experience putting this theory into practice, but many of them do most of their work along and may not have enough of a chance to talk with others about their solo practice. This workshop, or “shareshop,” is a forum for experienced medical interpreters to share their work with others and learn from each other. This workshop guides participants in discussing their interpretation of medical and lay language used by professionals and consumers in medical settings. Workshop participants will discuss translations of common terms as well as various approaches they have taken to provide communication access and convey speakers’ intent.

Daniel Greene teaches to improve the lives of interpreters and the consumers they work for. He helps interpreters focus on what they can do before, during, and after assignments, including preparation, interaction, and supervision. He guides his students toward understanding and mastery through critical thinking, experimentation, and reflection. He has been a college instructor, workshop presenter, and mentor since 2005, and an interpreter in a wide range of topics and settings since 1990. He received his MA in interpreting studies with an emphasis in teaching interpreting, and he holds an NAD-RID National Interpreter Certification, Master. See more at
