Product description

Review

'This comprehensive, structured, and accessible primer will quickly become the standard textbook around which introductory courses are organized. Moreover, as a cohesive account of this nascent field in all its breadth and diversity, this timely volume stakes a convincing claim for Interpreting Studies as an academic discipline in its own right ... eminnently user-friendly. It will be particualrly useful for instructors of introductory courses on interpreting research ... Its publications represents a major contribtution to the field of Interpreting Studies.' - International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC)

'In his new book, Franz Pöchhacker undertakes the task of drawing a sweeping picture of the field of interpretation. Though this is an ambitious goal, the author, who is a prominent researcher in this discipline, provides a comprehensive framework that will, on the one hand, introduce the field to novices and, on the other, review the major developments for budding researchers ... this book will undoutedly become a fixture in the recommended literature of students of interpretation around the world.' - Book Review

'The book is an ambitious, well-informed and well-researched piece of work. It not only provides an excellent introductory text to would-be interpreting scholars, but also significantly boosts the development of interpreting studies in general. It is a concrete step forward in interpreting research. We can safely say that, with the new-found momentum fuelled by the publication of such a work, interpreting studies will soon establish itself firmly as a new discipline.' – Perspectives: Studies in Translatology
