The Ninth Volume in the Studies in Interpretation Series
From Reference & Research Book News
Ten years ago, a law recognized Brazilian Sign Language, Libras, as a national language, and in 2005, a formal process was created for educating sign language interpreters and sign language translators. Both signed and spoken undergraduate and graduate courses in interpretation and translation were soon offered nationwide, and related research has blossomed. Some of that research is described here, in chapters on mapping Libras interpretation research in the context of translation studies, cognitive control in intermodal bilingual interpreters, the work of the Brazilian sign language interpreter in high schools, gender and sign language interpretation, and other topics.
