The Sixth Annual Student & Novice Interpreter Network (SNIN) Conference:

In Your Hands

Friday, June 24 to Sunday, June 26, 2016
Northeastern University, Boston MA


Are you an interpreting student, recent graduate, or novice interpreter with less than five years of professional interpreting experience? Then this conference is for you! Both Deaf and hearing interpreters welcome!


We surveyed over 70 possible participants about the workshop topics they were interested in and have developed the conference schedule around these results (hence the title, In Your Hands). We are thrilled about our lineup of exciting topics and amazing presenters! Some topics we will cover include:


National Interpreter Certification!


Healthcare interpreting!


Memory retention!


DeafBlind interpreting!


Translating English idioms!


Hands-on interpreting practice!




How to team with a Deaf interpreter!


…And more!
