 Aim


More than 300 languages are spoken in London.

In hospitals, at court, or in other difficult situations, people may need to speak in their own language, which is not always English.

Community and public service interpreting then plays a crucial role; it can have direct impact on people’s lives.

 

This one-day symposium aims to inform about the current situation and the challenges faced by community and public service interpreting, to take stock and to develop visions for the future.

A discussion among community/public service interpreters and leading scholars from Translation, Communication, and Socio-linguistic Studies will identify further research needs in this area, addressing not only linguistic but also cultural aspects and asking how this research can be of use to the everyday practice.

 

Because of SOAS’s unique position, our purpose is to explore in this area especially the situation with respect to Asian, Arabic, and African languages and the needs for translation amongst cultures.
