The Developmental Pediatrics setting can present many challenges for interpreters, from very colloquial terms, to very complex conditions and procedures. This session will give the interpreter an overview of what to expect when interpreting in the Developmental Pediatrics clinic, including medical providers who work in this setting, developmental milestones, and common diagnoses, procedures and treatments. A handout of terminology in English and Spanish will be provided.

I hold a BA Hons. in Italian and have taken courses at the postgraduate level in both Latin American Studies and Translation. For the past six years, I have been working as an onsite translator and interpreter at the Universidad Técnica Particular de Loja (UTPL), in Ecuador, South America. Although I primarily work from Spanish into English, I have also worked as a freelancer in other language pairs (Italian and French). As far as interpreting is concerned, I have done both onsite interpreting (conference interpreting) and escort interpreting. In addition, I have given workshops and seminars on translation, especially the theory and practice of translation and the translation of historical and political texts.
