Julia Cheng, from Community Action Duluth (CAD) , explains what is involved with CAD’s tax site and how it benefits community members.
This English source video is interpreted into ASL by a variety of interpreters. This provides an opportunity to see interpreters at various points on their professional paths and see different ways to convey this information. Each of the interpreters create two interpretations. The first one they did with only this amount of information for preparation:
Julia Cheng, who works for a Community Action agency in Duluth Minnesota, describes a program where volunteers assist people in preparing and submitting their taxes. She also discusses what type of impact this program has on the people who use it and on the broader community.
After this first attempt, the interpreters create a second interpretation where they have more understanding of what text is about. Finally, they provide some reflections on their work – recognizing that this is just a snapshot in time. We are extremely grateful to everyone who was willing to share their work with this project.
