Manual for Beginning Interpreters answers the question: “How can I become a successful interpreter in U.S. immigration courts?” Using vignettes and an asylum hearing, this manual will teach you how to embark on this career. Plentiful exercises are provided for practicing the different modes of interpretation. The mock trial will expose you to the vocabulary, colloquialisms, and cultural practices often needed in these types of cases. At the time of the launching of Manual for Beginning Interpreters: A Comprehensive Guide to Interpreting in Immigration Courts it is the only book that coaches interpreters in the English Spanish pair and other languages used in Latin America to navigate immigration courts and how to be successful from the start. Here is why you should read this book: *easy guide to read *presented through various characters that tell you their stories and experiences *a hands-on book *while navigating through courts provides you with concepts, definitions and vocabulary used *many real vignettes with words employed so the student reinforces concepts, definitions and vocabulary learned *tips from experienced interpreters and attorneys, so the beginning interpreter avoids mistakes and improves their interpreting skills *terminology used in court through bibliography that allows for further reading and studying *many vignettes for practicing for preliminary and individual hearings. This manual shows the new interpreter how the main actors think, plan, strategize, prepare for their cases and conduct their job in courts so the beginning interpreter can learn and practice their skills. And finally, the beginning interpreter will delve into an extensive practice mock trial with full direct and cross examinations by fictitious respondent’s attorney and ICE attorney with a wide variety of themes and vocabulary to practice and hone their skills, all unique for books in the subject of interpreting that exist in the market nowadays.

Interpreters play a crucial, yet often underestimated role in asylum interviews. They mediate between the asylum-seeker and the interviewer, who would not be able to communicate without the help of the interpreter. As it is often not possible for applicants to provide written evidence to substantiate their claims, their oral accounts of what has happened to them are usually the sole basis for an official’s decision and ultimately a pivotal point in the applicant’s life. Given the significant consequences of such decisions during the asylum procedure, interpreters carry a great deal of responsibility both in terms of their professional behaviour and with regard to the quality of interpretation. This handbook, now in its second, updated and expanded edition, responds to the need for qualified interpreters in asylum procedures by offering a theoretical insight into a variety of topics relevant to interpreters in the asylum context, as well as activities and exercises enabling experiential and interactive learning. It is aimed both at interpreters in asylum procedures who have no formal training and trained interpreters who wish to specialise in the field. In addition, the handbook is intended for facilitators and trainers to use in face-to-face training courses. The handbook is also relevant to asylum authorities and interviewers, providing them with insights into and guidance in working with interpreters.
