Summary
"The Interpreter's Resource provides an overview of language interpreting at the turn of the twenty-first century and is an invaluable tool for aspiring and practising interpreters. A practical guide, it begins with a brief history of interpreting and then goes on to explain key terms and the contexts in which they are used. The chapter on community interpreting details the situation regarding community, court and medical interpreting around the world. As with any other profession, ethics are important and this book includes five original Codes of Ethics from different professional interpreter organizations." "Many interpreters are employed as freelance or staff conference interpreters. This book provides background information on a large number of international organizations which employ interpreters. For example, in the case of the European Union and the United Nations, information is provided on language policy, recruitment procedures, and the number of interpreters employed plus listing all the different entities that make up the European Union and the United Nations. If you are confused about the Council of Europe, the European Commission, the Council of Ministers and the European Parliament, you will find the answers to your questions in this book." "Postal and Internet website addresses accompany all information. Professional interpreter Associations are listed which, via the internet, can be useful sources of new ideas for interpreters working thousands of miles away."--Jacket
