Legal Translation: Articles
« on: 09 December 2009, 17:59:30 »
Some articles by Holly Mikkelson:
Verbatim Interpretation: an Oxymoron
This article analyses current legal standards for court interpretation and current theories of interpretation, and propose solutions to the existing conflict between modern oral translation tendencies and conservative legal world.
Besides the review of the Western ideas on word-for-word translation, I found  the "Practical Implications for the Interpreter" chapter extremely interesting as well where it is said about real interaction between a court interpreter on one side and the judge and jury on the other.
