A review on challenges in interpreting at higher levels
Dr. T. Sharon Raju , Ahmed Yaseen Issa Al Juboori
Since the beginning of time, the act of interpreting has been seen as a challenging and psychologically taxing endeavor. Interpreting scholars have, time and time again, underlined the significance of the influence of emotional factors on interpreting. This article takes a comprehensive look at what conference interpreting entails, provides a description of the research that has been done up to this point, suggests an impression of the condition of the discipline right now, and provides historical context to explain how interpreting has developed in this setting. Some of the subjects that will be addressed include tests for entrance, quality standards, and various sorts of interpreters, language pairs, and working situations. Additionally, language pairs and working circumstances will be discussed. At the end of the chapter, you will find some recommended reads as well as some ideas for further research.
