ATIF is committed to bringing meaningful and relevant workshops and seminars to Florida T&I professionals. Anthony “Tony” Rivas is one of the most renowned instructors in the field:
As core faculty at the prestigious University of Arizona’s Agnese Haury Institute of Court and Medical Interpretations and curriculum development and language specialist at said University’s National Center of Interpretation, Anthony T. Rivas brings a wealth of court interpretation experience. Tony was on some of the initial United States Court Interpreter Oral and Written Examination Draft Committees and Rater Teams. An ATA-certified English>Spanish translator, Tony is a member of the International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC) with classifications of “A”/Spanish and “A”/English and is English<>Spanish bidirectionally certified by the National Translator Certification Service. Anthony holds undergraduate language and linguistic degrees, and he did graduate work in Hispanic Linguistics and French Phonetics.
This Sunday, May 3, 2015, Tony will be leading another one of his classes for a group of savvy professionals. The class is open to ATIF members and non-members, both translators and interpreters. The subject matter transcends a specific mode of communication: colloquialism and idiomatic expressions are present in both our spoken and written work.
The 3-hour seminar will be held at Southeast Pastoral Institute on Miller Road (SW 56th Street). The full address in on the link above.
