Interpreting Matters is the first course on video to show interpreting in action. It focuses on the role of the interpreter in the courtroom and in particular on interpreting in a British Immigration Appellate Authority court. However, the lessons of this environment are extended in the accompanying book to other areas of public service interpreting. Through two dramatised case studies based on real-life observation, Interpreting Matters shows interpreters at work in the courtroom, analyses their behaviour and provides pointers for good professional practice. Following the case studies, the court adjudicator. Professor David Casson, adds his own comments on the role and behaviour of the interpreter and provides helpful advice to practising and would-be interpreters. This makes Interpreting Matters ideal material for initial or in-service interpreter training or home-study reference.
