This first-of-its-kind volume contains ten papers from the 2013 International Symposium on Signed Language Interpreting and Translation Research that document current research on critical areas in interpretation and translation studies. The contributors cover topics ranging from the need for Deaf perspectives in interpretation research to discourse strategies and techniques that are unique to video relay call settings, translating university entrance exams from written Portuguese into Libras (Brazilian Sign Language), the linguistic choices interpreters make when working with idiomatic and figurative language, the nature of designated interpreting, and grammatical ambiguity in trilingual VRS interpreting. The research findings and insights contained here will be invaluable to scholars, students, and practitioners.
