The authors expertise as leading Australasian sign language interpreter educators and practi...tioners, ensures their book integrates a deep knowledge of current international best practice into local conditions for sign language interpreting.

Drawing upon international and local sources, it discusses the interpreting process, the role of the interpreter, professionalism and ethics, as well as challenges and strategies for working in particular settings, and using specialist interpreting skills. Each chapter includes thought questions that guide readers to reflect on the information and issues presented. This book is a valuable resource for sign language and interpreting students, interpreters entering the profession, as well as a reference book for sign language interpreter practitioners, trainers and researchers.
