The Third Volume in the Interpreter Education Series

From Choice

This book collects seven chapters authored by practitioners of sign language interpretation, one of the main components of the newly emerging field of interpreter studies. Presenting work from the linguistic (sign language) and interpreting disciplines, the book takes up such topics as degree programs in interpreting, curriculum, methods, and materials. A chapter on educating interpreters in Australia gives the book an international flavor. The chapter on multiculturalism applied to interpreting is an added plus, given the increasing number of Latino/a Americans who are deaf and in need of interpreters who know Spanish, English, American Sign Language (ASL), and Mexican Sign Language. Throughout contributors make frequent mention of certified Deaf interpreters, who specialize in working as a team with hearing interpreters in helping Deaf clients with minimal language skills, particularly in court or legal settings. This would be an excellent introductory text for a beginning interpreter student as well as a good resource in libraries supporting coursework in ASL and Deaf studies. Summing Up: Recommended. Lower-/upper-division undergraduates; researchers, faculty, and professionals.

Cynthia B. Roy is a professor in the Department of Interpreting at Gallaudet University.
