In conversation: translation, interpreting and trauma with Faye Magkouti live on Instagram
Update: the live is now available to catch up on IGTV!
On Friday 27th August at 2pm BST, Vasiliki will be going live on Instagram @greektometranslations with Faye Magkouti to discuss translation, interpreting and trauma.
What is trauma in the context of our profession?
How to recognise it?
What to do about it?
Through their own professional experience, Vasiliki and Faye will look back at those moments that touched them and challenged them mentally and emotionally, triggers and ways to push through during uncomfortable situations, secondary traumatisation, and finding solace in becoming the voice of the vulnerable and their human stories.
Keep an eye out for Instagram stories and reminders and add it to your calendar!
This is sure to be an interesting discussion and questions before and during the live are welcome.
