The Interpreters' Newsletter

The Interpreters' Newsletter (new issue on Dialogue Interpreting; edited by Eugenia Dal Fovo and Natacha S.A. Niemants). The editors invite contributions that address theoretical, methodological and practical issues of Dialogue Interpreting.

Dialogue Interpreting (DI) has been gaining increasing scholarly interest in Interpreting Studies, revising the notion of interpreter invisibility to account for the physical and verbal participation of interpreters in the interaction. This interest has fostered discussion on the socio-pragmatic aspects of the interpreter’s role in a complex, multi-party communication activity. Issue 20 of The Interpreters’ Newsletter will offer researchers and practitioners the opportunity to share research results and aims to provide an exhaustive overview of the latest advances in this field. 

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
Design and creation of DI corpora and methods of interrogation
Analysis of interpreters’ performances
DI in different work settings (e.g. health care, immigration services, courtrooms, business settings, police stations, television, etc.)
Interactional aspects of DI (interpreting as translation and coordination activity, role and identity negotiation, co-construction of meaning, etc.)
Code switching in interpreter-mediated dialogue-like interactions
DI in absentia (i.e. remote, telephone or video interpreting)
Ad hoc, natural or non-professional interpreting in dialogue-like interactions
Multimodality in DI
Cultural competence and DI
Note taking in DI
DI quality assessment and users’ expectations
DI ethical, socio-cultural and ideological issues
Recurring tendencies in interpreters’ translational behaviour and their impact – if any – on the dissemination of DI rules of conduct and professional norms
