Introduction to Interpreting skills can be taken as a stand-alone course or as the first course as part of the Diploma in Legal Interpreting.
This course allows students to build on the necessary skill set that is required to specifically enhance their language proficiency within their mother tongue language. This will enhance their capabilities to provide adequate interpreting skills by equipping learners with some basic memorisation techniques, better note taking and trains them in the art of managing speech turns in interpreting situations.
The Diploma in Legal Interpreting, which is accredited by SASSETA, is aimed at upgrading language practitioners’ skills in interpreting and thereby improving their career prospects. Qualifying students who pass the Diploma in Legal Interpreting will be able to apply to enrol in Postgraduate Diploma in Translation or Interpreting at Wits, subject to terms and conditions set by the University Senate.
