Product description

Review

This book is water to a parched earth. The need for multicultural, evidence-based texts on interpretation is significant. This volume not only addresses the general field of interpretation, it explicates the local context, and it also includes recent research and trends in practice as reflected in international professional literature. The authors of this book bring together a rich set of resources, knowledge, skills and experience. Further, they are each actively, respectfully and meaningfully involved in the communities Australasian interpreters are likely to be working with. The practical and the theoretical are nicely married in this text by authors who are wise teachers, fine researchers, excellent practitioners and women of integrity.Students, working interpreters and teachers of interpretation will find this book a valuable resource. We are so fortunate to have such a fine tool at our disposal, filled with useful and sophisticated information, yet accessible even to those who are just beginning their studies. From recent entrant into training to advanced interpreter with a great deal of experience in the field, this book will offer many benefits and is sure to become a necessary volume in every interpreter's library. - Sharon Neumann Solow, ASL & international Sign Interpreter, Interpreter, Educator & Consultant, From the Foreword Reviews of the previous edition:This is in many ways a pioneering book, addressing as it does the subject of sign language interpreting from an Australasian perspective... There are relatively few books written on this topic so whilst students will find it invaluable, it will also be useful to everyone interested in this area of work, both from Australasia and beyond. There is no doubt that this is an important contribution to our knowledge of sign language interpreting worldwide. - Liz Scott Gibson, Director, Deaf Action, Edinburgh and President, World Association of Sign Language Interpreters This book is the first such book published in Australia and New Zealand, and will benefit training courses. It will surely enhance the quality of these courses, both at the vocational training and university levels. It will also be a valuable resource for professionals and consumers alike... - Robert Adam, Life Member and Past President of the Australian Association of the Deaf
