An Introduction to Interpreter's Role-Space


WHAT IS THIS SESSION ABOUT:

An introduction to the model of interpreted interaction developed by Robert Lee and Peter Llewellyn-Jones.

The field of interpreting has struggled with the concept of ‘role’ for a long time. Metaphors such as ‘telephone’ or ‘conduit’ have been used to describe what we do; they often serve to confuse people rather than clarify. This session presents a new model of the interpreter's role; one that is dynamic and principled, not arbitrarily following a list of rules.

You will be introduced to the model, the theory and practice behind it as well as specific examples. At the end.
