In recent decades the explosive growth of globalization and regional integration has fuelled parallel growth in multilingual conferences. Although conference interpreting has come of age as a profession, interpreter training programs have had varied success, pointing to the need for an instructional manual which covers the subject comprehensively. This book seeks to fill that need by providing a structured syllabus and an overview of interpretation accompanied by exercises in various aspects of the art. It is meant to serve as a practical guide for interpreters and as a complement to interpreter training programs in the classroom and online, particularly those for students preparing for conference interpreting in international governmental and business settings. This expanded second edition includes additional exercises and provides direct links to a variety of web-based resources and practice speeches, also including additional language combinations.

Nolan, a United Nations linguist, offers interpreters and students in training programs a guide to conference interpreting in international governmental and business settings. He assumes that students have mastered their active and passive working languages and the fundamentals of translation, and he presents an overview of interpretation, with exercises that focus on expanding the student's range of expression, to build the vocabulary needed. He covers public speaking, preparation/anticipating the speaker, complex syntax/compression, word order/clusters, general adverbial clauses, untranslatability, figures of speech, argumentation, formal style, diction/register, formal policy addresses, economic and political discourse, quotations/allusions/transposition, humor, Latinisms, numbers, and note-taking. English, French, and Spanish are used in the exercises, but they can be adapted for other languages. Annotation ©2013 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
