Non-professional Interpreting and Translation in the Media

Series:

Edited By Rachele Antonini and Chiara Bucaria

Non-professional Interpreting and Translation (NPIT) is a recent discipline. Books and volumes on this subject that combine all the different fields are extremely uncommon and authoritative reference material is scarce and mostly scattered through disparate specialized journals. There are many areas and aspects of NPIT in the media that to date have been under researched or utterly neglected. The aim of this volume is therefore to fill an important gap in the academic market and to provide an overview of diverse aspects of non-professional interpreting and translation in the media. The volume consists of a collection of essays by eminent international scholars and researchers from the field of Translation and Interpreting Studies.

NPIT in the media: An overview of the field and main issues1

1. Rationale of the volume

The present volume was initially inspired by the First International Conference on Non-professional Interpreting and Translation (NPIT1) that took place at the former Advanced School of Modern Languages for Interpreters and Translators (now the Department of Interpreting and Translation) of the University of Bologna in Forlì in 2012. The number and variety of papers devoted to non-professional interpreting and translation (henceforth NPIT) that were presented at the conference confirmed the need for such an event where scholars and researchers dealing with this specific form of linguistic and cultural mediation can share their studies without being relegated in sessions or panels that have nothing or little to do with NPIT. Hence the importance of having forums like NPIT conferences where scholars and researchers coming from different disciplines and dealing with different aspects and facets of NPIT can present their work.
