Overview

For conference interpreters in international government and business settings, and students preparing for such a career, a practical manual that provides an overview of interpreting as well as exercises. It assumes its readers have mastered their active and passive working languages and the basics of translation. The texts used were selected to illustrate various aspects of translation and interpretation and also to introduce students to the range of topics and perspectives that arise in the arenas where conference interpreters work. Nolan is chief of the Verbatim Reporting Service and deputy director of the Interpretation, Meetings, and Publishing Division of the United Nations. Distributed in the US by UTP Distribution.
