Product description


Reviews for the new edition:

"The book really is a tour de force of logic, patient explanation, examples, and method. Gillies has a knack of explaining complex things simply. It is a must for any student of interpreting." - Interpreter Soapbox

"Often referred to as the contemporary compendium of consecutive interpreting, this book covers everything you always wanted to know about note-taking." - Andrea Alvisi, Attitude Translations

"One of the strong points of this book is that it can be read in the order it was written, which is recommended especially for beginners, but it can also be used as a reference book (...) the English is clear and concise and the diagrams also complement the written explanations, making it easily accessible to non-English speakers." - Hyang-Ok Lim, Korean Society of Interpretation and Translation Studies

"I consider this second edition of Andrew Gillies' book a must-have for anyone who wishes to develop a robust, efficient, and reliable note-taking system, or who aims at training interpreters to do so." - Marc Orlando, AIIC

Reviews for the previous edition:

"The book is well written; above all it is highly readable... In conclusion, it is a book to be highly recommended, and in my view indispensable reading for those of us involved in, or even just interested in, interpreter training." - European Commission Interpreting Bulletin

"I would be relieved if Andrew Gillies' handy guide to the subject were made compulsory reading in the class-room. Clearly organised, attractively presented and written (refreshingly) in English, it provides welcome support for professional standards." - Interpreter Training Resources

"What is certainly original and what makes the book useful is precisely Gillies' de-mystifying, intuitive approach to discourse analysis and note-taking, together with the idea that note-taking is, ultimately, about analysing speeches." - AIIC
