Abstract

This book looks at translator and interpreter training, focusing on mediation and culture in a global context. It updates numerous research currents in translator and interpreter education by situating them in relation to broader curricular and technological discussions. Particular attention is given to the way in which translator and interpreter training relates both to other topics on university curricula, and to recent developments in the professional sphere of language mediation. These include the new European standard for translation services and the ethical training of interpreters. The significant impact of new technologies in translation is also studied. These discussions take place in the context of an increasingly mature and sophisticated theoretical environment of translator and interpreter training research, one which recognizes the implications of discourses such as constructivism and objectives-oriented design for new pedagogies in the field.
