Title: Teaching and Testing Interpreting and Translating
URL: http://www.peterlang.com/Index.cfm?vLang=E&vSiteID=4&vSiteName=BookDetail%2Ecfm&VID=11892
Series Title: Intercultural Studies and Foreign Language Learning. Vol. 2
Description:

The book presents a range of theoretical and practical approaches to the
teaching of the twin professions of interpreting and translating, covering
a variety of language pairs. All aspects of the training process are
addressed - from detailed word-level processing to student concerns with
their careers, and from the setting of examinations to the standardisation
of marking. The articles show very clearly the strengths and needs, the
potential and vision of interpreter and translator training as it exists in
countries around the world. The experience of the authors, who are all
actively engaged in training interpreters and translators, demonstrates the
innovative, practical and reflective approaches which are proving
invaluable in the formation of the next generation of professional
translators and interpreters. While many of them are being trained in
universities, they are being prepared for a life in the real world of
business and politics through the use of authentic texts and tools and
up-to-date methodology.
