This title analyzes topics and issues in translator and interpreter training, focusing on areas that are new and underexplored, yet crucial for translator/interpreter practice. This book looks at translator and interpreter training, focusing on mediation and culture in a global context. It updates numerous research currents in translator and interpreter education by situating them in relation to broader curricular and technological discussions. Particular attention is given to the way in which translator and interpreter training relates both to other topics on university curricula, and to recent developments in the professional sphere of language mediation. These include the new European standard for translation services and the ethical training of interpreters. The significant impact of new technologies in translation is also studied. These discussions take place in the context of an increasingly mature and sophisticated theoretical environment of translator and interpreter training research, one which recognizes the implications of discourses such as constructivism and objectives-oriented design for new pedagogies in the field. "Continuum Advances in Translation Studies" publishes cutting-edge research in the fields of translation studies. This field has grown in importance in the modern, globalized world, with international translation between languages a daily occurrence. Research into the practices, processes and theory of translation is essential and this series aims to showcase the best in international academic and professional output.
