Designer Galliano Says He Can’t Recall Speaking Slurs – NYTimes.com
We complain when qualified/certified interpreters are not used to interpret in U.S. courts but this is happening all over the world. How surprising is it that at the high profile case of John Galliano in Paris, the interpreter used seems to have been incompetent? (Because you never know how what really happened was interpreted by the news).
It will be interesting to see if Mr. Galliano’s experience with an interpreter will be discussed at the FIT (International Federation of Translators) International Forum on Ethics and Good Practices in Paris this summer.
