Dialogue Interpreting in Professional Settings - TRAN826

This unit introduces students to dialogue interpreting in professional contexts. Dialogue interpreting is the mode of interpreting generally used in legal, health, education, social service and business settings. The settings in which the interpreter works impact on the nature of the encounter and the response required by the interpreter. Recent discourse-based research has contributed to a better understanding of how professional interpreters carry out their work. The course guides students in their transition into professional practice by examining the theories, specific techniques and strategies used by professional interpreters to adapt their interpreting and their role to suit the demands of different settings.
