Editorial Reviews

"This innovative volume is essential reading for students, interpreters and researchers.  It is innovative because it covers all areas of interpreting (conference, sign language, court, healthcare and more) from a global point of view and includes chapters on such under-researched topics as sight translation, translation for the mass media and transcription and translation. The Handbook brings together the work of 31 leading scholars to provide a comprehensive overview of the past, present and future of interpreting. The breadth and scope of this book make it a must have." - Mary Phelan, Dublin City University, Ireland "This handbook's comprehensive overviews, multiple foci, insightful guidance, and wealth of authentic references make it into a true encyclopedia of interpreting that will be of great use to a wide and varied readership of interpreting students, users of interpreting services, practitioners, and interpreting researchers - to anyone who is interested in the field and wants to gain deeper insights into it." - Lihua Jiang, Hunan Normal University, China "As its name suggests, the handbook is a resourceful collection of topics in interpreting, offering a comprehensive overview of the past, present and and futiure of interpreting." - Hua Song, Xiamen University, China
