Dialogue Interpreting in Professional Contexts: Training Stakeholders to Communicate Effectively with Interpreters

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaper

Abstract

Institutionally appropriate communication is a major issue within numerous bodies and organizations today. The ability to interact successfully within professional contexts depends on a set of practices available to members of a given society, influenced by context-specific agendas, but also co-constructed
by all the parties in interaction through linguistic and embodied actions,
assessed according to collectively shared principles.

Migration flows and globalization trends have led to interpreters being increasingly required to enable communication during encounters among participants from different linguistic and cultural backgrounds. The complex range of linguistic and semiotic means used in interpreting services has
therefore become an even richer terrain for the investigation of interactional dynamics.

This thematic symposium investigates interaction between migrants and institutional representatives across different settings, with a specific focus on how the latter can learn to effectively interact with the former. To this
end, it will proceed through selected contributions providing illustrative examples of what happens in this type of interaction and putting forward ways of applying findings from empirical research to the training of clients or end users of these services.
