Interpreter guidelines

by Dr Kate Wright

Generated at the request of Disasters Emergency Committee (DEC) members, these guidelines are intended to help visiting press officers brief local field workers acting as interpreters.

They have been designed so that the first two sides with bullet points on them can be printed double-sided and laminated for use on trips. The remaining two sides are for background reading with a view towards policy-making.

To help the author keep track of how the guidelines are being applied, please email Dr Kate Wright if you are interested in using them.
