Discussion Points for Session 5

These are the discussion points for session 5. Please refer to this page for the session schedule and details.

1) Are there rules that regulate interpreters' professional secrecy in
you country?

2) Do these rules state when it is allowed to breach a rule of secrecy
(i.e. in Nordic countries  it's says in case of serious danger for
health or life)?

3) Have you ever been in a situation where you have wanted to or felt
compelled to denounce any of the parties?

4) Is there any ethical/cultural/religious/
political reason that may
prevent you from accepting a given assignment?

5) Do you have strategies for situations when interpreting clearly
does not work? For languages reasons? For technical reasons? For
ethical reasons?

6) Shouldn't interpreters at least be informed of the topic that will
be discussed?

7) Is there a "point of no return" once you accept an appointment?
