Give a Scholarship to a Dreamer

Give a Scholarship to a Dreamer

A few years ago my cousin Damaris was deported back to Panama. She was not a violent person, never had been convicted of a crime and was a God fearing woman. But none of that mattered, she was here on an expired travel visa and that labelled her as “Illegal.” If her deportation wasn’t traumatic enough, she was killed within days of returning to Panama and we have grieved her loss ever since.

 

Many have forgotten about the plight of Dreamers in the hustle and bustle of all that has ensued since the current president has given them a deadline when their legal status will be revoked. This Holiday Season may be the last most dreamers spend in the country they call home. For many re-entry into their native countries is fraught with fear and unknowns. The only shimmer of light lies in those who have a skill that is needed here in the US and may re-enter under work visas for willing employers.

 

MiTio wishes to provide Dreamers with this re-entry skill. Hospitals in the US are required to provide Medical Interpreters to their patients free of charge yet there is a shortage of Medical Interpreters in the US. MiTio trains bilingual individuals to provide this service nation wide.

Your minimum investment of $200 gives a $700 scholarship to a Dreamer!

Delicacies of the Engrish Language

Delicacies of the Engrish Language

Ever want to nibble some Dew Dew and wash it down with a gulp of Pocari Sweat? Wondering what chocolate bar offers “The sentimental taste is cozy for the heroines in the town?”

Find it all and more – in real-life pictures – on engrish.com .

The site politely informs that “Engrish can be simply defined as the humorous English mistakes that appear in Japanese advertising and product design.” Talking about the language business, the site also has a store where you can purchase a “Give me a hand, I’m going to milk the cows” T-shirt. Bookmark it for the next holiday season!

Ever play that whispering game?

Ever play that whispering game?

This Japan Times item is a bit old, but merits mention. NHK television offers simultaneous interpretation of their nightly news program. Here’s what happened when they covered a George W. Bush and Tony Blair press conference back in April 2003.

“When U.S. President George W. Bush and British Prime Minister Tony Blair held a press conference in Belfast on April 8 to discuss, among other things, the fall of Baghdad, NHK covered it live, and the timing happened to coincide with NHK’s evening news report.

As they always do when they broadcast an important speech by a foreign head of state, NHK used simultaneous interpreters to convey the remarks in Japanese. However, since the evening news broadcast, which the press conference was pre-empting, is already presented on two audio channels, it meant that viewers had a choice of listening to either Japanese or English. The easiest thing to do would have been to simply patch the satellite audio from the press conference directly into the sub-channel, but instead NHK used the English interpreters who were already on hand for the evening broadcast. In other words, on the English sub-channel you heard simultaneous English interpretation of the Japanese simultaneous interpretation of two men speaking in English. The effect was, to say the least, bizarre, though, granted, sometimes the U.S. president needs all the help he can get.”

“The ‘golden bowl’ of translation” from the Shanghai Daily reflects the current high profile of conference interpreting in China. Although some may doubt that the demand for conference interpreters is as great as reported, there is always room for well-trained, highly competent interpreters – and the launching of serious training programs in China is certainly to be welcomed. The two trainers mentioned in the article – Dai Huiping and Andrew Dawrant – are both AIIC members.
