New issue: New Voices in Translation Studies 14 (2016)
ISSUE 14 (2016) – Special Conference Issue
IATIS, the International Association for Translation and Intercultural Studies, is pleased to announce the online publication of the FOURTEENTH issue of New Voices in Translation Studies. Issue 14 consists of a selection of eight articles, five abstracts of recently submitted Ph.D. theses, and a book review section. The eight articles of this issue are proceedings from the Westminster Conference (2014) on public service translation. These papers explore the public service translation as a global concern highlighting the political implications of translation and multilingualism within contexts of the EU, the training of translators working in the criminal justice system, the potential consequences of inappropriate training for public service interpreters, interpreting and video interpreting issues within the medical profession vis-a-vis less established languages and migrant communities in Spain, translation policy using the US as a case study, the professionalization of the role of public service interpreters within a Chinese context and an analysis of the audience in community translation.
The free, open-access journal is available through the IATIS website at http://www.iatis.org/index.
