In this course, we discuss the ethical codes for interpreters and translators of three major countries: Australia, Brazil, and United States.
We bring practical examples to make sure that our students understand what is involved in each one of those codes in depth.
We compare the codes of the three countries and start a discussion on major items.
The course is taught through Power Point presentations with narration (voice) and quizzes (questions of the type multiple choice most of the time).
The more the student follows our instructions, the more they learn.
An average individual should take at least two hours to finish this course.
There is no time limit.
The student may come back to any point in the presentation any time they want.
The student may also check on the answers to the quizzes if they are unhappy with the result of any of them, and then do them again.
The main reason to take this course is understanding how cultural differences impact on the duties of both the professional translator and the professional interpreter.
Some of the other possible reasons are: to start writing texts for the industry, to acquire PD points (Australia), to improve the quality of the resume, to study for exams on ethics (in Australia, for instance, any major company will test the candidate on the topic before hiring them. One also needs to sit for an exam on ethics with NAATI to be accredited), and to acquire one more resource (after the course, if communication flows, the instructor might help with ethical queries, for instance).
Important: The promotional video brings a joke. Nobody that has taken part in the processes of creation of this course has ever spoken to T.C. or A.J. about it.
