Description of this Book

This established textbook, now in its 2nd edition, concentrates on demonstrating how international best practice can operate in the specific local conditions in Australia and New Zealand. The authors expertise as leading Australasian sign language interpreter educators and practitioners, ensures their book integrates a deep knowledge of current international best practice into local conditions for sign language interpreting. This distinguishes it from other international texts on sign language interpreting which tend to reflect different linguistic, professional and training experiences and environments. Sign Language Interpreting provides an updated overview of the profession in Australia and New Zealand, introducing contemporary theoretical and applied aspects of interpreting practice. 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.

Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review This book is the first such book published in Australia and New Zealand, and will benefit training courses. It will surely enhance the quality of these courses, both at the vocational training and university levels. It will also be a valuable resource for professionals and consumers alike... - Robert Adam, Life Member and Past President of the Australian Association of the Deaf Reviews of the previous edition:This is in many ways a pioneering book, addressing as it does the subject of sign language interpreting from an Australasian perspective... There are relatively few books written on this topic so whilst students will find it invaluable, it will also be useful to everyone interested in this area of work, both from Australasia and beyond. There is no doubt that this is an important contribution to our knowledge of sign language interpreting worldwide. - Liz Scott Gibson, Director, Deaf Action, Edinburgh and President, World Association of Sign Language Interpreters This book is the first such book published in Australia and New Zealand, and will benefit training courses. It will surely enhance the quality of these courses, both at the vocational training and university levels. It will also be a valuable resource for professionals and consumers alike... - Robert Adam, Life Member and Past President of the Australian Association of the Deaf
