Interpreting Chinese, Interpreting China - China s emergence has generated a wave of interest in interpreting and interpreter training.

First published as a Special Issue of "Interpreting" (11:2, 2009) this collection of papers by six leading researchers from the Chinese Mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan and overseas, some based on recent PhDs, explores topics as diverse as historical conceptions of the interpreter s role, interaction with linguistic minorities, methods for training and assessment, and negotiating hazards like speed, register or the cultural divide in conference, courtroom and community. The volume also includes an Editor s foreword contextualising the Chinese interpreting scene for the international reader, an overview of the fast evolving landscape of interpreter training and research in China, and two critical reviews of textbooks used in home-grown training programmes."
