Public Service Interpreting and Translation (PSIT) provides people with the opportunity to participate, grants equal access and helps to overcome or reduce discrimination.
In recent years, progress in IT, telecommunications and mobile devices has sparked efforts to apply these means to interpreting and translation in legal, administrative and healthcare settings. The practicalities, e.g. cost-savings, of telephone and video interpreting or of translation apps have given a boost to remote interpreting and tool-assisted translation. This special issue of FITISPos aims to present experiences, state-of-the-art applications as well as research findings on the use, development and future of new technologies in PSIT contexts.
Interested authors working at the interface between PSIT and technology are invited to submit papers that reflect the history and state of the art of technology-based developments in PSIT.
We welcome proposals for this special thematic issue on PSIT and technology to be published in April 2018 in FITISPos-International Journal (FITISPos-IJ).
