Changing Paradigms and Approaches in Interpreter Training
Perspectives from Central Europe
This collection offers a unified treatment of the latest research on interpreter training in Central Europe with a special focus on community interpreting.
The volume brings together perspectives from scholars working across different countries to map the current state-of-the-art in interpreter training in the region. Across thirteen chapters, the book highlights the diverse range of innovative approaches interpreters and interpreter trainers are implementing in response to changing student populations and broader social changes around migration bringing an increase in refugee communities in the region. Contributors analyze combined methodologies integrating new approaches to community interpreting with traditional conference interpreter training. Different chapters also look at novel perspectives on motivational aspects of interpreter training to examine the ways universities in the region are responding to a new generation of interpreter trainees.
Offering an up-to-date synthesis of the latest approaches in interpreter training in Central Europe and takeaways for the discipline more broadly, this book will be of interest to students and scholars in interpreting studies, as well as active interpreter trainers and program coordinators.
