Editorial Reviews


'This comprehensive, structured, and accessible primer will quickly become the standard textbook around which introductory courses are organized. Moreover, as a cohesive account of this nascent field in all its breadth and diversity, this timely volume stakes a convincing claim for Interpreting Studies as an academic discipline in its own right ... eminnently user-friendly. It will be particualrly useful for instructors of introductory courses on interpreting research ... Its publications represents a major contribtution to the field of Interpreting Studies.' - International Association of Conference Interpreters (AIIC)

'In his new book, Franz Pöchhacker undertakes the task of drawing a sweeping picture of the field of interpretation. Though this is an ambitious goal, the author, who is a prominent researcher in this discipline, provides a comprehensive framework that will, on the one hand, introduce the field to novices and, on the other, review the major developments for budding researchers ... this book will undoutedly become a fixture in the recommended literature of students of interpretation around the world.' - Book Review

'The book is an ambitious, well-informed and well-researched piece of work. It not only provides an excellent introductory text to would-be interpreting scholars, but also significantly boosts the development of interpreting studies in general. It is a concrete step forward in interpreting research. We can safely say that, with the new-found momentum fuelled by the publication of such a work, interpreting studies will soon establish itself firmly as a new discipline.' – Perspectives: Studies in Translatology

Pochhacker sets a standard for the field of Interpretation with this publication, as it provides our first comprehensive introductory text on interpretation. All serious, academic study must begin here, with this in depth exploration of what has been compiled from academics from around the world. Particular attention must be paid to Pochhacker's statements on communication.

If there is something lacking I cannot find it, albeit the profession lacks the maturity itself to have yet developed a so called grand unifying theory that would have been discussed in detail here. Again, to Pochhacker, the praise for having written an eloquent and reflective text that should inspire future academics in interpretation who might produce such a GU Theory for interpretation.

I purchased this book for my class at Rutgers. I am in the MA Translation program and I am taking Interpreting. This book is helping a lot.
