Book Information


Title: Interpreting Brian Harris
Subtitle: Recent Developments in Translatology
Edited By: María Amparo Jimenez Ivars
María Jesús Blasco Mayor

The editors of this volume organized the symposium Interpreting... Naturally
at Universitat Jaume I (Castellón, Spain) in November 2009. They have now
compiled some of the most outstanding work presented at the event by
young researchers, which is included in this book as a sequel of Interpreting
Naturally. A tribute to Brian Harris. Furthermore, the editors have invited
seasoned and renowned academics to contribute to Brian Harris' well
deserved homage. Their contributions mainly deal with natural translation
(NT), a notion coined by Brian Harris to describe untrained bilinguals' ability to
translate. The authors seek to further develop NT by connecting it with
related areas: bilingualism and translator competence, cultural brokering,
language learning and interpreter training, interpreting paradigms and training.
Furthermore, they discuss norms and directionality in interpreting, interpreting
quality, interpreting in the public services, postgraduate interpreter training
and the profession.
