Book Information


Title: The Interpreting Studies Reader
Written By: Franz Pƶchhacker
Edited By: Miriam N. Shlesinger

"At last, the seminal articles on interpreting have been compiled in a single volume. Many of them have been out of print, inaccessible, or unavailable in English until now. A must for every library, whether personal or institutional." -Holly Mikkelson, International
Interpretation Resource Center, California

The Interpreting Studies Reader is a comprehensive guide to the growing area of interpreting studies. Spanning the multiple and diverse approaches to interpreting, including conference, court and sign-language interpreting, this reader collects the seminal articles in the field and places them in their thematic and social contexts. This book is an authoritative and up-to-date overview of interpreting studies and the new directions the subject is taking in the twenty-first century. Features include an introductory essay reviewing the evolution of interpreting studies, organization into seven thematic sections-each with an editors' introduction, a comprehensive bibliography and suggestions for further reading. From interpretation in antiquity to projections about the future of the field, this guide will have every essay a student, researcher or practitioner could need.
