What is community interpreting? What are the roles of the community
interpreter? What are the standards, evaluation methods and accreditation
procedures pertaining to community interpreting? What training is
available or required in this field? What are the current issues and
practices in community interpreting in different parts of the world?
These key questions, discussed at the first international conference on
community interpreting, are addressed in this collection of selected
conference papers.

The merit of this volume is that it presents the first comprehensive and
global view of a rapidly growing profession, which has developed out of
the need to provide services to those who do not speak the official
language(s) of a country. Both the problems and the successes related to
the challenge of providing adequate community interpreting services in
different countries are covered in this volume.
