Sign language interpreting - Philippe Séro-Guillaume, ESIT, Paris

Abstract

Over the last thirty years, the recognition of sign language, and the growth of conference interpreting and of training courses - including some within universities - have led interpreters to use sign language in unfamiliar fields. This offers a privileged vantage point to observe the interpretation process. Transcending the various signifiers at play - sounds in spoken languages and visual signs in sign language - it validates the analysis derived from Danica Seleskovitch and Marianne Lederer's Interpretive Theory.
