A landmark work, this definitive international textbook for community interpreting includes a special focus on medical interpreting. It also covers educational and social services interpreting.  The textbook provides the most comprehensive introduction to the profession available.

 

Authored by five credentialed specialists in the field, this work above all teaches skills, ethics, and problem solving. It breaks professional skills into simple components and offers simple decision-making tools to help interpreters make on-the-spot judgment calls in daily practice.  Written in plain English, and featuring an abundance of visual aids to make the content easy to understand and a joy to read, The Community Interpreter: An International Textbook meets the demands of a global audience.

Authored by the same team of writers who produced the landmark work, The Community Interpreter®: An International Textbook, CCC is proud to offer the first U.S. university-level textbook for medical interpreting to appear in full color.

This is also the first comprehensive, research-based textbook in the world for medical interpreting, for use in universities and colleges and to support 40- to 100-hour certificate programs for medical interpreters.

 

Easy to read and fun to study, it's a work that by design content-rich yet written in comparatively basic English. The book's beautiful graphic design makes the content clear at a glance, with visual aids to meet the needs of an international audience.  As a result, this book can be used to train interpreters weaker in written English, such as newly arrived refugees, indigenous interpreters and/or interpreters who lack higher education.

This instructor's guide is designed for trainers who plan to deliver a one-day workshop on medical terminology for interpreters. Both the manual and one-day program are based on a revolutionary concept, the idea that medical terminology for interpreters should not be taught. It should be experienced.

Legal interpreting is dangerous in the hands of amateurs. Protect yourself, your clients, interpreters and legal outcomes. Purchase this manual for a legal interpreter or bilingual employee who performs legal interpreting outside the courtroom. This textbook is also extremely useful for legal interpreter trainers.
