Title: Revisiting the Interpreter’s Role
Subtitle: A study of conference, court, and medical interpreters in Canada, Mexico, and the United States
Written By: Claudia V. Angelelli
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=BTL%2055
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library 55
Description:

Through the development of a valid and reliable instrument, this book sets out to study the role that interpreters play in the various settings where they work, i.e. the courts, the hospitals, business meetings, international conferences, and schools. It presents interpreters’ perceptions and beliefs about their work as well as statements of their behaviors about their practice. For the first time, the administration and results of a survey administered across languages in Canada, Mexico and the United States offer the reader a glimpse of the interpreters' views in their own words. It also discusses the tension between professional ideology and the reality of interpreters at work. This book has implications for the theory and practice of interpreting across settings.
