9783843375948: Information and Communication Technologies in Conference Interpreting: A survey of their usage in professional and educational settings

New technologies, more specifically, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs), are today indispensable in all professions. It is undeniable, however, that some professions have been affected to a greater extent than others. This study describes ICTs used in conference interpreting, in both professional and educational settings. It also records the interpreters' and interpreter trainers' perceptions of ICTs, especially in terms of improving the quality of their performance and their professionalism. The data has been collected through two global surveys, both conducted mainly through questionnaires and personal interviews, and triangulated with in situ observations. This research collects and presents updated information that can help both conference interpreters and conference interpreter trainers to identify the ICTs available today, and what the users think of them. This data should also be valuable for the developers of electronic resources for interpreters and their trainers, to understand their future customers better. This study will also be useful in the future for historians, as it depicts a particular moment in the history of the profession.
