Abstract:

In this book, we aim to bring together seminal approaches and state-of-the-art
research on interpretation as a tribute to Brian Harris' influential legacy to
Translatology and Interpreting Studies. Whenever Harris has sat down to
reflect and write, he has paved the way to new approaches and promising
areas of research. One of his most outstanding contributions is the notion of
natural translation, i.e., the idea that all humans share an intuitive capacity to
translate which is co-extensive with bilingualism at any age, regardless of
language proficiency. This contribution has proved pivotal to translation and
interpreting research. In a world where most individuals speak more than one
language, and therefore millions of translational acts are performed every
second by untrained bilinguals, the concept of natural translation provides the
arena for T&I scholars to discuss issues directly related to or stemming from
it, such as bilingualism, language brokering, community/public service and
diplomatic interpreting, all of them paramount to interpreting research and the
future of the profession.
