Challenges in Training and Educating 21st-Century Interpreters Other events...
A public lecture by Marc Orlando, Director of Translation and Interpreting Studies program, Monash University, Melbourne and 2017 Institute of Advanced Studies Visiting Fellow.

Working in a globalised and digitised world, and having to adapt to many different working environments, twenty-first century translators and interpreters face new challenges. They should therefore be trained to cope with the novel multifaceted realities of their profession. To meet these challenges and to gain the adaptability necessary to succeed in their role as linguistic and cultural mediators today’s and tomorrow’s practitioners should be exposed to, and learn from, the four dimensions of the Translation and Interpreting field: theoretical, technological, practical and professional.

This presentation will focus specifically on the training and education of interpreters. It will discuss today’s interpreting working environments, required skills and competence, modes of interpreting, technologies and equipment, as well as specialisations. The aim of this training is for twenty-first century interpreters to achieve the status of practitioners-researchers or practisearchers (Gile, 1995).
