Title: Global Trends in Translator and Interpreter Training
Subtitle: Mediation and Culture
Edited By: Séverine Emmanuelle Hubscher-Davidson
Michal Borodo
Series Title: Bloomsbury Advances in Translation

This book looks at translator and interpreter training, focusing on mediation
and culture in a global context.

It updates numerous research currents in translator and interpreter education
by situating them in relation to broader curricular and technological
discussions. Particular attention is given to the way in which translator and
interpreter training relates both to other topics on university curricula, and to
recent developments in the professional sphere of language mediation. These
include the new European standard for translation services and the ethical
training of interpreters.

The significant impact of new technologies in translation is also studied.
These discussions take place in the context of an increasingly mature and
sophisticated theoretical environment of translator and interpreter training
research, one which recognizes the implications of discourses such as
constructivism and objectives-oriented design for new pedagogies in the field.

'Stimulating reading! This innovative and thought-provoking collection of
articles, by authors with their finger on the pulse of recent translator and
interpreter training trends, tackles salient issues, addressing fundamental
questions through well-informed studies in the field.' Catherine Way, Faculty
of Translation and Interpreting, University of Granada, Spain
