We updated some buttons to make sure it was very clear how/when to send direct messages to project stakeholders.
All users have the ability to send direct messages to “LinguistLink Admins”, “Project Requesters”, and “Project Schedulers”. This messages go directly to these users and are not visible publicly.
We have also added a button for linguists providing or other services to upload the file directly for the scheduler to access.
NOTE: Linguists should avoid delivering completed files in the “Project Discussion Board”. When they do this, it sends a notification to ALL project stakeholders (including the requester). It’s been known to create confusion and extra work — so don’t do it!
We have updated the visible columns in the Project View to enable quick view of information for Schedulers. They can view who requested the project, when the assignment.
TIP: You can sort information and copy/paste in a slick format to easily share information! Check it out!
Here are some interesting opportunities you might be interested in. . .
The Oregon Health Authority’s Office of Equity and Inclusion (OHA-OEI) is inviting you to respond to this survey because we are interested in your perspective on the working conditions for interpreters. Survey responses will be analyzed for insights on how to improve program services, laws and policies, and the working conditions for health care interpreters in Oregon.
Benefits for completing this survey
You will receive 2 continuing education units (CEU). Your CEU certificate will be emailed to you separately and will count toward the 24 hours of required CEU’s for renewing OHA issued HCI letters. The CEU credits will not count toward other national or states program requirements.
To ensure that your personal information is kept separate from your survey responses, a separate window for CEU information will open about a minute after you complete the survey. Please note that your personal information will only be used for emailing your CEU certificate and will not be shared.
The survey will end on September 30th, 2018and the results will be published on the OHA/OEI website two months after the survey ends.
The end of the summer picnic was an event we won’t soon forget. We met at Irving Park in Portland, Ore. Some of you may have worked on translating signs for this park earlier this year!
Unfortunately, as is typical in the Pacific Northwest, the weather didn’t really cooperate. We gathered under a large oak tree which provided a nice cover. We then enjoyed a taco bar provided by Cha! Cha! Cha!
It was all good until the breeze blew and hundreds of hard acorns pummeled us from above!
As one attendee observed:
It seemed like the start of a joke! Spanish, Italian..Israeli and Thai sat around a picnic table. then acorns start falling from the sky…
If you couldn’t make this time, be sure to catch us at a future event. Guaranteed to be unforgettable.
