Studies in Interpretation, Volume 6

From The Midwest Book Review’s library newsletter Wisconsin Bookwatch

The sixth volume in the outstanding Studies in Interpretation series from Gallaudet University Press, Toward a Deaf Translation Norm by Christopher Stone is a 224-page study of the emergence of the profession of Deaf translators and interpreters which has arisen due to the increasing inclusion of the hearing impaired in business, education, popular culture, government, and other aspects of contemporary society. Drawing upon his years of experience and expertise, Stone notes the increasing numbers of translators and interpreters working with and for the deaf and provides perspective on the future evolution of these services in an age of the internet and mass communications. Of special note is the concluding chapter on deaf translation norms. Enhanced with an appendix, references, and an index, Toward a Deaf Translation Norm is a seminal contribution for personal, professional, and academic library reference collections and supplemental reading lists.

Christopher A. Stone is a senior lecturer (associate professor) of Interpreting and Deaf Studies at the University of Wolverhampton in England. He is also a nationally certified BSL–ASL–English interpreter and holds an IS accreditation from WFD-WASLI.
