Can someone give me some advice about which questions techniques can I use to clarify meaning during a community interpreting assignment and how can I demonstrate strategies to repair mistakes?

Many thanks,

Hi sunshine, could you perhaps say a little more about what you mean - maybe give some examples. How and to who might you need to clarify meaning (because the client doesn't understand what you're saying. Why don't they understand - legal terminology and procedure?). And in the second question... who do you want to demonstrate strategies to?
