Reviews

Jonathan Downie continues his mission to bring interpreting research to the people. Outspokenly, he tackles fundamental questions for interpreters in the 21st Century. Firmly grounded in Interpreting Studies, Downie interlaces research with anecdotes well-founded in any interpreter's daily life. It is an equally trailblazing and sulphurous book on the aspirations of machine interpreting, and the fatal mistake of not making a difference. The book is a welcome addition both to the debate on the future of interpreting and to my students' literature list.

Elisabet Tiselius, Stockholm University, Sweden

A deep exploration of the limits of language, technology and the enabling power of human mediation in promoting understanding. This book puts interpreters back in the driver's seat, where they belong.
