"'At last, the seminal articles on interpreting have been compiled in a single volume. Many of them have been out of print, inaccessible, or unavailable in English until now. A must for every library, whether personal or institutional.'" - Holly Mikkelson, International "Interpretation Resource Center, California, USA."
"A first-rate introduction to the whole area of interpreting studies. "Introducing Interpreting Studies is informed, authoritative and written in a clear and engaging style. A must for anyone involved in the teaching or study of interpreting and of value to anyone with an interest in interlingual and intercultural communication in today's world."
-Michael Cronin, Dublin City University, Ireland
"Franz Pochhacker's textbook is a first, indispensable for students and teachers of interpretation. A solid foundation for further research."
