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

It updates numerous research currents in translator and interpreter educationby situating them in relation to broader curricular and technologicaldiscussions. Particular attention is given to the way in which translator andinterpreter training relates both to other topics on university curricula, and torecent developments in the professional sphere of language mediation. Theseinclude the new European standard for translation services and the ethicaltraining of interpreters.

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

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