Interpreters who work with signed languages and those who work strictly
with spoken languages share many of the same issues regarding their
training, skill sets, and fundamentals of practice. Yet interpreting into
and from signed languages presents unique challenges for the interpreter,
who works with language that must be seen rather than heard. The
contributions in this volume focus on topics of interest to both students
of signed language interpreting and practitioners working in community,
conference, and education settings. Signed languages dealt with include
American Sign Language, Langue des Signes Québécoise and Irish Sign
Language, although interpreters internationally will find the discussion in
each chapter relevant to their own language context. Topics concern
theoretical and practical components of the interpreter's work, including
interpreters' approaches to language and meaning, their role on the job and
in the communities within which they work, dealing with language variation
and consumer preferences, and Deaf interpreters as professionals in the field.
