EDWARDS, Alicia Betsy
The Practice of Court Interpreting describes how
the interpreter works in the courtroom and other legal settings. The book
discusses what is involved in court interpreting: case preparation, ethics
and procedure, the creation and avoidance of error, translation and legal
documents, tape transcription and translation, testifying as an expert
witness, and continuing education outside the classroom.
The purpose of the book is to provide the interpreter
with a map of the terrain and to suggest methods that will help insure
an accurate result. The author, herself a practicing court interpreter,
says: "The structure of the book follows the structure of the work as
we do it."
The book is intended as a basic course book, as
background reading for practicing court interpreters and for court officials
