New publication on Chinese-English interpreting and intercultural communications

Big congratulations to our colleagues Dr. Jim Hlavac and Dr. Zhichang Xu for the publication of their monograph -- Chinese-English Interpreting and Intercultural Communication.

This book presents and describes examples of Chinese–English interpreting across a large number of settings: conference interpreting; diplomatic interpreting; media interpreting; business interpreting; police, legal and court interpreting; and healthcare interpreting. Interpreters working in these fields face not only the challenge of providing optimal inter-lingual transfer, but also need to fully understand the discourse-pragmatic conventions of both Chinese and English speakers.
