HKRAC looking for interpreters

Post Date: Jul 5th, 2011 | Categories: Advocacy | COMMENT

Dear all,

HKRAC is now inviting applications for the Community Interpretation Training for the Refugee Legal Aid Context, which will be held twice in August 2011. Thanks to the generous support of the Marden Foundation and the Centre for Comparative and Public Law at the University of Hong Kong, the training course will be provided free of charge to participants.

This 40-hour course is designed specifically for interpreters who will work with refugee service organizations and will cover the fundamentals of professional community interpretation. We are excited to have Alice Johnson from the Cairo Community Interpreter Project at the American University in Cairo facilitate the courses. Please help circulate this flyer to your network and mailing lists, and encourage anyone who may be interested to apply for this training. More information on the training and application procedures can be found at:

If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me. Thank you for your assistance.

Kind regards,
Christal Chan
Hong Kong Refugee Advice Centre Limited
