The Effective Interpreting Series: Translating from English - Study Set

In Translating from English, top interpreter educator Carol Patrie seeks to encourage students and interpreters to use creativity and a range of linguistic resources to come up with a faithful translation without the pressure of real-time processing. Learning to transfer a message from one language to another while preserving the meaning across language boundaries can be a steppingstone to real-time or simultaneous interpretation.

Give yourself a comprehensive, powerful learning tool with helpful theoretical Introductions for each topic, Study Questions, a structured Five-Step Follow-Up, and a Progress Tracking Sheet.

Topics include:


  • Preparing to Translate
  • Analyzing the Meaning of the Text
  • Message Transfer
  • Reformulating the Message
  • Priorities in Translation
  • Testing the Translation

Translating from English
