Houston Community College, Spring Branch campus, Eagle Room

HITA proudly presents the workshop “Solving the mystery. What do all those terms mean?” by the nationally and internationally esteemed interpreter Mr. Tony Rosado.

PODCAST WITH TONY ROSADO https://soundcloud.com/hitagroup/episode-2-tony-rosado

This workshop is for intermediate and advanced court interpreters and legal translators. Those attending will finally understand and learn the answers to questions such as: Why is there a statute for the dead? Why would you offer evidence if it is not for the truth of the matter? What is a joinder? What about a Class Action, Judicial Notice, Parol Evidence, Unclean Hands, and so many others?


It is impossible to interpret or translate what you cannot understand. This workshop will deal with these and other legal terms in English, will analyze them, explain them, and put them in context. By the end of the day, all attendees will clearly understand why attorneys, judges, and knowledgeable language professionals do what they do when faced by one of these difficult technical terms.


Approved for 8 CEPs by ATA and 7.5 Non-Ethics credit hours by JBCC
