In March, Fátima Cornwall joined 12 fellow Spanish court-certified interpreters from across the United States, and attended the Winter Retreat for Spanish Court and Medical Interpreters in Antigua, Guatemala.

The subject matter was DNA analysis. Interpreters spent five days developing their English/Spanish glossary and honing their simultaneous, consecutive and sight-translation skills. The retreat included a guest lecture by Diego Archila from the Universidad del Valle de Guatemala, Department of Biochemistry and Microbiology Department, as well as a guided tour of the university’s microbiology lab.

The retreat was facilitated by Chris Dimmick, state certified court interpreter from MD Translation, an Idaho company.
