Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

In Courtroom Interpreting, Marianne Mason offers a new perspective in the study of courtroom interpreting through the exploration of cognitive and linguistic barriers that court interpreters face everyday and ultimately result in an interpreter's deviation from original linguistic content. The quality of an interpreter's rendition plays a key role in how well a non-English speaking defendant's legal rights are served. Interpreters are expected to provide a faithful rendition of all semantic, syntactic, and pragmatic content regardless of how difficult the task may be at a cognitive level. From a legal perspective this expectation may be sound as it disregards the cost associated with the interpreter having to account for a great deal of linguistic content. Mason proposes that if the quality of interpreters' renditions is to improve and the rights of non-English speaking minorities is to be better served the issue of cognitive overload needs to be addressed more effectively by the court interpreting community.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Interesting perspective on difficulties of courtroom interpreting 22 janvier 2014
Par E. Jaksetic - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The author, a professor of languages and linguistics: (1) notes how the translations provided by courtroom interpreters can adversely affect the quality and fairness of judicial proceedings; (2) identifies some of the difficulties that face courtroom interpreters trying to provide faithful renditions of the oral statements made by participants in the courtroom; (3) presents a theory for identifying the primary causes for interpreter deviations from the oral statements actually made by participants in the courtroom; (4) discusses the results of a study the author conducted in a federal court to observe, evaluate, and diagnosis the kinds of errors made by courtroom interpreters and identify the likely sources of those errors; (5) suggests possible lines of future research about courtroom interpreting; and (6) makes recommendations on how courtroom interpreters can improve their effectiveness in making translations during courtroom proceedings.

The book provides an interesting, but limited perspective on courtroom interpreting. The book provides an interesting — and occasionally fascinating — social science perspective on the difficulties faced by courtroom interpreters. Although the author briefly notes some of the ways that incomplete or inaccurate translations can adversely affect the quality and fairness of judicial proceedings, the author’s focus on the social science aspects leaves the reader without a substantive legal perspective on the matter. That is unfortunate because: (1) there are significant legal implications associated with incomplete or inaccurate translations of judicial proceedings; (2) any effort to implement changes in the way that courtroom interpreters conduct themselves and provide translations during judicial proceedings would require the cooperation and consent of judges, lawyers, and other legal personnel; and (3) independent of any actions taken by courtroom interpreters, judges and lawyers need to understand the strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of courtroom interpreting to improve their ability to fulfill their responsibilities in cases involving any courtroom interpreting.

Although the book is written from a social science perspective, it discusses a serious practical matter that is highly relevant to interpreters, judges and other judicial personnel, and lawyers and paralegals involved in any legal case that has courtroom interpretations. Members of the legal profession looking for practical advice and guidance about courtroom interpreting will not find much that is immediately helpful in this book. However, members of the legal profession having cases that require courtroom interpreting could learn some interesting and sobering things about the strengths, weaknesses, and limitations of courtroom interpreting that might influence the way they approach cases involving courtroom interpreting.

Dr. Mason's book will interest scholars and interpreters, and will encourage further investigation into professional interpreting.
A real must have.
