Do you know what the equivalent term for “cannabis” is in your specific language? This course offers an in-depth look into concepts and terminology that interpreters encounter while interpreting drug-related offenses. It also provides an extensive resource section and comprehensive glossary. If taking the course with instructor evaluation, students must submit 1 interpretation exercise and 1 glossary in order to receive a certificate of completion.
