Gaby's insight:

Webinar: "Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) for the Upwardly-Mobile Translator"

Every living thing in nature tends to grow. If it´s not growing, it's either dying or dead. As translators, we've been burning the candle at both ends, WITH the midnight oil, in order to achieve a standing and a standard of living that, for many, is not yet a reality. As you consider the paths you've taken, and the goals you want to achieve, the unavoidable question is, how come you don't have it, yet? The answer is closer than you think. And, by closer I mean physically, geographically, if you will. The answer is within YOU.

The Court Interpreting Fiasco Continues as Capita Agreement Is Branded 'Unsalvageable'

The Court Interpreting Fiasco Continues as Capita Agreement Is Branded 'Unsalvageable' | Translation matters | Scoop.it
The decision to hand over the court interpreting contract to Capita is simply yet another example of the bull-headed belief that subcontracting out services to private firms always leads to a sleeker, more efficient service.

(EN) - Dental Terminology | DeltaDentalSmile

(EN) - Dental Terminology | DeltaDentalSmile | Translation matters | Scoop.it

"Most dental terms are not complicated if you understand how they are developed and related. In addition, the treatment procedures are categorized by the procedure coding system. The terms are descriptive and often related to the anatomical part, e.g., a root canal treatment is treatment of the nerve canals in the root of the tooth; a crown is a restoration that covers the crown of the tooth (also called a cap) and a filling restores the tooth by packing the filling material (amalgam or resin) into the prepared cavity (derived from dentists telling the patients they were filling the cavity)."

Capita called in to explain non-attendance of interpreters again

Capita called in to explain non-attendance of interpreters again | Translation matters | Scoop.it

This case required a BSL and a Deaf Relay interpreter. All attended and I watched the hearing from the public gallery – I found it very interesting as I had never seen sign language interpreting in court, let alone one involving a Deaf Relay interpreter.

After a relatively short hearing a representative (a Barrister) of ALS (now trading as Capita Translation and Interpreting) was called to explain why no interpreters had been provided at the previous hearing on 18 October 2012.

Michael Turner QC on the legal aid cuts and change in regulation and why it will lead to injustice for all

Michael Turner QC on the legal aid cuts and change in regulation and why it will lead to injustice for all | Translation matters | Scoop.it

Delays in our court system are now so great that any cost saved is overtaken by the cost of delay hidden from the public on another balance sheet.

It costs £110 a minute to run a courtroom with a jury.

The reason for those delays can be squarely laid at the door of those private companies who the ­politicians like to pretend have saved you money – the likes of G4S, SERCO, GEO-AMY and APPLIED LANGUAGE SOLUTIONS.

Someone is profiting out of these new arrangements, but I guarantee you it is not you.
