Red T: Protecting Translators and Interpreters in High-Risk Settings

Maya Hess, Criminal Justice, City University of New York

Red T was established in 2010 to advocate for the protection of translators and interpreters working in conflict zones and other high-risk settings. Changing the way linguists are perceived by those who employ them and by the broader public is essential to that effort.

Founder and CEO Maya Hess is a forensic linguist who has provided language support and expert witness services in many high-profile terrorism trials. She holds an M.A. in Journalism from New York University, a Graduate Certificate in Terrorism Studies from John Jay College of Criminal Justice, and an M.Phil. and Ph.D. in Criminal Justice from the City University of New York.
