10/15翻譯講座：Interpretation: From Theory to Practice
泰國瑪希敦大學Dr. Somboon Pojprasat 講座
Interpretation: From Theory to Practice
The talk aims to discuss in response to the basic notions and theories in the field of consecutive and simultaneous interpretation, and more importantly, to unravel the processes of this linguistic task for practitioners. Important topics include the definition, the interpreter’s maxim, interpreting stages, analysis of speech types, re-expression, and helpful suggestions. The talk will be organized in an interactive way in which the theories will be discussed in close conjunction with sharing of the ideas and experiences between the presenter and the audience throughout the talk. Regarding the theories in particular, the presenter as an interpreter from English into Thai and vice versa will reflect what and how he has done in relation to and, at times, in departure from them.
