By Sari Pietikäinen, FinlandAlexandra Jaffe, Long BeachHelen Kelly-Holmes, and Nikolas Coupland

Title: The Critical Link 4
Edited By: Cecilia Wadensjö
Birgitta E Dimitrova
Anna-Lena Nilsson
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library 70
Description:

This book is a collection of papers presented in Stockholm, at the fourth
Critical Link conference. The book is a well-balanced mix of academic
research and texts of a more practical, professional character. The
introducing article explicitly addresses the issue of professionalism and
how this has been dealt with in research on interpreting. The following two
sections provide examples of recent research, applying various theoretical
approaches. Section four reports on the development of current, more or
less local standards. Section five raises issues of professional ideology.
The final section tells about new training initiatives and programmes. All
contributions were selected because of their relevance to the theme of
professionalisation of interpreting in the community. The volume is the
fourth in a series, documenting the advance of a whole new empirical and
professional field. It is of central interest for all people involved in
this development, interpreters, researchers, trainers and others.
