Interpreter intervention in mediated business talk by Gavioli & Maxwell

Conversation Analysis and Language for Specific Purposes (Linguistic Insights. Studies in Language and Communication)

The book

In a time of globalization, community interpreters are becoming more and more important.

Gavioli and Maxwell explore dialogue interpreting in business settings, and use conversational analysis to study the audio data they transcribed.

In their paper they prove that interpreters mediating in business interactions do more than simply translate participants’talk. As Wadensjö (1998) would say, they both relay and coordinate talk.
