Series: New Trends in Translation Studies

Edited By María Dolores Rodríguez Melchor, Ildikó Horváth and Kate Ferguson

Information and communication technologies (ICTs) have radically changed the way we live and work, and the field of interpreting is no exception. Interpreter training today needs to prepare students for this new professional reality and ICTs are increasingly being incorporated into the interpreting classroom, with devices such as the digital pen, double-track recording tools, transcription and annotation software, and speech banks serving as valuable training tools.

With the aim of exploring some of the new developments taking place in the field of conference interpreter training in the digital age, this volume brings together a selection of contributions by experts in the field. They showcase the experiences of various institutional and academic stakeholders, and focus on areas such as remote interpreting and virtual classes, online repositories and resources, virtual learning environments (VLEs), and accessibility issues, among many others.
