"The Effective Interpreting Series has truly enhanced interpreter education. The research information in each workbook is remarkable. Additionally, the interpreting exercises provide teaching tools to help students succeed. The step-by-step approaches used in the workbooks are one of the best tools for interpreter education. The Effective Interpreting Series is a treasure and the longer I use it the more treasures I find."

"After we incorporated these texts into our curriculum, eight out of nine students passed the boards - a marked improvement compared to previous graduating classes. The skills acquired from these materials really gave students that extra edge needed to experience success."

"Carol Patrie's Effective Interpreting Series describes and analyzes the process of translation and interpretation so that the student can learn to look at their work critically and specifically, in order to improve its accuracy and dynamic equivalence. The books in this series are great for independent study projects for CEUs. Check them out!"
