The increasing movement of people between countries in the modern worldrequires that interpreters and translators take their place, shoulder toshoulder, with members of other professions in the public services, such asdoctors, lawyers and social workers. Interpreters and translators, andothers with needed language skills, must therefore earn that place byundertaking what is necessary to become a recognized profession withnationally recognized training, assessments, qualifications and a code ofconduct. This book provides an accessible introduction to this emerging andsocially critical branch of the language professions. The focus is on thedevelopment of a professional framework in which public serviceprofessionals, including managers, can learn to work together with theirnew colleagues to deliver a professional service to those seeking accessacross linguistic and cultural barriers. The book brings together a wealthof practical and professionally-oriented information which will benefittrainees, trainers and practising professionals alike, as well as those whomanage and work with them.
