Abstract:

This book explores the intricacies of court interpreting through a
thorough analysis of the authentic discourse of the English-speaking
participants, the Spanish-speaking witnesses and the
interpreters. Written by a practitioner, educator and researcher, the
book presents the reader with real issues that most court interpreters
face during their work and shows through the results of careful
research studies that interpreter's choices can have varying degrees
of influence on the triadic exchange. It aims to raise the
practitioners' awareness of the significance of their choices and
attempts to provide a theoretical basis for interpreters to make
informed decisions rather than intuitive ones. It also suggests
solutions for common problems. The book highlights the complexities of
court interpreting and argues for thorough training for practicing
interpreters to improve their performance as well as for better
understanding of their task from the legal profession. Although the
data is drawn from Spanish -- English cases, the main results can be
extended to any language combination. The book is written in a clear,
accessible language and is aimed at practicing interpreters, students
and educators of interpreting, linguists and legal professionals.
