2. LIMITS TO THE ROLE OF INTERPRETERS IN THE JUDICIAL ARENA (ETHICS; NEUTRAL) (4 CE / CIMCE)

Throughout this course, participants will explore various scenarios and case studies to identify and analyze the limits of interpretation within the judicial arena, both in person and through virtual platforms. Topics covered will include the interpreter’s duty to accurately convey messages without adding, omitting, or altering content, the boundaries of cultural mediation, and the importance of maintaining neutrality and confidentiality while retaining their role as an impartial court officer.

3. REFRANERO MEXICANO (ES) (3.5 CE / CIMCE)

Throughout this course, participants will delve into the rich tapestry of Mexican idiomatic expressions, exploring their origins, meanings, and usage in different contexts.
