Subject: South American Sign Language Meeting
Dear valerie and SW list members:
There have been "centuries" that I've stopped to post anything. I'm
Cris, ex-member of SignNet Project and SL interpreter. I've been soo
busy with my work as interpreter. Now I'm a member of the Ethics
commission of my state and work as a voluntary to the deaf federation
and a free lancer SL terp too !
Well...I went, last week, to the first South American Sign Language
Interpreters Meeting in Montevideo, Uruguay. Each country was
represented by a deaf leader and a sign language interpreter. Brazil:
Marianne Stumpf (our main researcher in sign writing) and me. We
presented how our interpreting courses are organized (contents,
etc...) and a differential was just Sign Writing that is each time
more accepted and requisited by SL interpreters here. It was a
agitated discussion about it, you know, but in general many people
contacted us to know a little more about it.
Just to let you know how things are going in terms of spreading SW.
My best regards.
