The Effective Interpreting Series is a ten-volume series that builds from skills within ASL and English, to interlingual skills such as translation, consecutive interpreting and simultaneous interpreting. Five of the ten volumes are based on ASL source materials, while the other five are based on English source materials. The Effective Interpreting Series addresses the complex skill of simultaneous interpreting in a developmental sequence that predicts success for students and teachers, especially when the series is used as a whole.

Seminars on using The Effective Interpreting Series in your classroom or your mentoring sessions are now available! If you are interested in hosting a seminar for your college or university, please send an email to Joe Seifrid at for complete details.
