Series Title: American Translators Association Scholarly Monograph Series XIV
Description:

Testing and Assessment in Translation and Interpreting Studies
examines issues of measurement that are essential to translation and
interpreting. Conceptualizing testing both as a process and a product, the
collection of papers explores these issues across languages and settings
(including university classrooms, research projects, the private sector,
and professional associations). The authors have approached their chapters
from different perspectives using a variety of methods, some focusing on
very specific variables, and others providing a much broader overview of
the issues at hand. Chapters range from a discussion of the measurement of
text cohesion in translation; the measurement of interactional competence
in interpreting; the use of a particular scale to measure interpreters’
renditions to the application of a specific approach to grading or general
program assessment (such as interpreter or translator certification at the
national level or program admissions processes). These studies point to the
need for greater integration of research and practice in the specific area
of testing and assessment and are a welcome addition to the field.
