 Abstract:
 
 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.
