About the instructor
Ana M. Toro-Greiner is a federally certified Spanish interpreter with 17 years of professional experience. She's been teaching her craft since 2010, most recently at New York University. Currently, she works as a contract interpreter for federal courts and as a language consultant for companies in tech and education.
The course is designed for students with some experience and/or education in legal interpreting who are interested in advancing their studies to encompass the federal court system.
This course will focus exclusively on the practice of interpreting in federal courts by taking the students through the stages of criminal cases typically heard in United States District Courts. Familiarity with consecutive and simultaneous interpretation and sight translation is expected of the students. They will expand their vocabulary by putting new words and concepts to use through at home and in-class practice sessions. There will be lessons on terminology used in procedures ranging from plea hearings to pre-sentencing investigations, as well as on deploying appropriate modes of court interpreting in this fast-paced environment.
