CSD of Wisconsin Presents Foundations of Interpreting

MADISON, WIS. — CSD of Wisconsin proudly Presents Foundations of the Interpreting Process I & II, presented by Betty Colonomos. Foundations I will be on March 19–21 and Foundations II will be on April 16–18. Both will be held at Edgewood College in the Predolin Humanities Center Madison, WI.

This widely acclaimed training focuses on components of the Colonomos (integrated) Model of Interpreting in a low stress, highly interactive environment. Colonomos is well known as an educator of interpreters and language consultant as well as being highly educated in many arenas including Deaf Education/Speech Pathology, counseling and Linguistics.

Foundations I will be focusing exclusively on sign-to-voice processing work, while Foundations II will focus on the voice-to-sign process. There are only 30 slots for each workshop, so participants are encouraged to register immediately. For registration and more details, please e-mail at or call CSD of Wisconsin at (608) 240-4964.

Due to multiple events happening the weekend of March 19-21, we highly recommend making hotel reservations as soon as possible.
