ATA conference for interpreters and translators in New Orleans

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – Cleveland, Ohio – October 24, 2018

Certified Interpreters United announces that Roxane King will be speaking at the American Translators Association’s 59th Annual Conference.

The conference will be in New Orleans, LA, on October 24-27, 2018.

Roxane will be presenting and Thomas Johnston will be the co-presenter in this advanced level session.

TITLE: Team Interpreting for Trials

WHEN: Saturday, October 27th, from 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm.


Certified judicial interpreters need to understand the extensive process for executing quality interpreting services during a trial. A rounded and defined approach to a trial is geared toward driving quality, acceleration, discipline, efficiency, and transparency. If executed properly, the interpreter becomes a “ghost” in the courtroom while protecting the record by providing the process, controls, and delivery excellence required by our profession. Topics in this session will include initiation, pre-trial definition, trial set up, trial execution, and post-trial support.

Roxane stated, “I’m passionate about this topic and look forward to discussing it with fellow interpreters at the ATA conference. Over the years, I’ve greatly benefited from learning from other interpreters during the ATA conference and believe that this session will be helpful to those who want to be better at executing quality interpreting services during a trial.”

Roxane is well qualified to be a presenter of this topic. She got her start in the Los Angeles court system in 2006 at all levels: legal, trial, depositions, arbitrations, witness interviews, expert witness testimony, hearings and resolutions. She has a full understanding of trial execution, what the courts require in many states during legal proceedings, including practical considerations and tasks of court interpreting from the initiation of project launching, rapid team workshop preparation, pre-trial set-up, trial execution and post-trial support.

Roxane currently leads the group of Certified Interpreters United (CIU), based in Cleveland, Ohio. CIU is a nucleus of trained, skilled, certified court interpreters. Roxane and her team provide interpreting and translation services for courts, law firms, corporations, institutions, and event managers and organizers.

Roxane is an active member of the American Translators Association (ATA), the CCIO, and National Association of Judiciary Interpreters and Translators (NAJIT).
