Dialogue Interpreting

From the publisher: “Drawing on recent peer-reviewed research in interpreting studies and related disciplines, Dialogue Interpreting helps practicing interpreters, students and instructors of interpreting to navigate their way through what is fast becoming the very expansive field of dialogue interpreting in more traditional domains, such as legal and medical, and in areas where new needs of language brokerage are only beginning to be identified, such as asylum, education, social care and faith.”

“This is a landmark textbook. Being thoroughly grounded in empirical research on interpreter-mediated interaction and institutional discourse, it deserves a wide readership, not only among students of interpreting and early-career interpreters, but also among those who are dependent on interpreter-services as public-sector professionals.” Cecilia Wadensjö, Stockholm University, Sweden
“This book contains a unique blend of theory and practice that is rare in academic publications. Its breadth and depth are truly impressive. Most innovative are the recommended activities in each chapter, focusing on research, performance skills and collaborative dimensions. Instructors and learners alike will find this work extremely useful.” Holly Mikkelson, Middlebury Institute of International Studies at Monterey, USA
