Heritage Interpreting (HI) – Home

The Heritage Interpreting project will develop, pilot, and research the impact of an interpreting curriculum specifically designed to address strengths and needs of future interpreters who are heritage speakers. 

 The field of translation and interpreting has experienced significant growth in the last decade. While college language departments are responding to this trend by introducing translation and interpreting programs, these programs typically overlook both heritage speakers’ valuable experience as translators and interpreters for their families and communities and their distinct needs. The Heritage Interpreting research project aims to develop an interpreting curriculum that capitalizes on the strengths of heritage learners and better serves their needs.
