Algarabía Language Co-op is offering a 10-week community interpreting and translation training for advanced Spanish bilinguals (speakers of Spanish with a high level of fluency and proficiency).
These trainings are designed for those interested in learning more about interpreting and translation in social justice spaces and language justice work using real life scenarios. Our goals are 1) to increase local language justice capacity among grassroots groups and community spaces; 2) to provide participants with useful work skills they can continue to develop; and 3) to introduce a social justice framework to understand the role of interpreters and translators in creating participatory and inclusive community spaces.
Spanish bilinguals are folks who grew up with Spanish being spoken at home or in their home community but were systematically denied access to bilingual education.
