These companion volumes, Translating from English and Translating from ASL are most powerful when used together to increase accuracy in message equivalence when working from English or from ASL. Strong translation skills in both directions create a strong foundation for simultaneous interpreting. A DVD that provides carefully constructed exercises accompanies each volume, one contains English source material and the other contains ASL source material.

Both volumes include the following topics:

  • Preparing to translate
  • Analyzing meaning
  • Message transfer
  • Reformulation
  • Priorities in translation
  • Testing the translation

These volumes will benefit educators, interpreting students and working interpreters. Each volume is offered in two formats: a Student Study Set or a Teacher's Guide. The Teacher's Guide contains all the material that the Study Set contains, plus added features including examples of appropriate responses to the questions in the student's workbook and tips for teaching. Working interpreters, through independent study, can earn up to two CEU's for each volume.
