9781593991517: Exercise Manual for the Training of Translators and Interpreters

The Exercise Manual for the Training of Translators and Interpreters ( Manual de ejercicios para la formacion de traductores e interpretes) aims at providing translators, interpreters, instructors and trainees with much needed exercises in practically all realms of activity, including Medical Legal (Court, attorneys, etc.), Law enforcement (police, arrests, statements, etc.), Business (advertisements, real estate, sales, etc.) and other social endeavors such as community services, immigration, job applications and the like.

The Manual comprises many kinds of exercises, including monolingual (expansion, synonyms, intralingual translation, etc.), bilingual for written and oral work (such as inter-lingual translation and interpreting, sight translation, consecutive, bilateral, and a bit of simultaneous), mixed (where one complete idea is to be translated into language A and the next idea is to be translated into language B), code-switching (a totally new kind of exercise, formerly limited in linguistic training, where ideas in sentences, paragraphs, and whole texts are expressed in different languages, making the student-trainee increase her reaction speed, improve vocabulary, structural, and memory skills in two languages. These exercises have also shown great effectiveness in bilateral and simultaneous interpreting training.

While the Manual is structured for five levels of proficiency (Beginners; Beginners Intermediates; Intermediate; Intermediate Advanced; Advanced) trainees and practicing translators/interpreters will find that exercises at all levels will always offer something new, exciting and useful in context.
