Title: The Practice of Court Interpreting
Written By: Alicia B. Edwards
Series Title: Benjamins Translation Library
Description:

The Practice of Court Interpreting describes how the interpreter works in the court room and other legal settings. The book discusses what is involved in court interpreting: case preparation, ethics and procedure, the creation and avoidance of error, translation and legal documents, tape transcription and translation, testifying as an expert witness, and continuing education outside the classroom. The purpose of the book is to provide the interpreter with a map of the terrain and to give suggestions for methods that will help insure an accurate result. The author is herself a practicing court interpreter, she says: "The structure of the book follows the structure of the work as we do it." The book is intended as a basic course book, as background reading for practicing court interpreters and for court officials who deal with interpreters.
