Hopefully, this commentary, based on the piece that was published in the November/December issue of Health Affairs, will help those who use interpreting services understand a little bit more about this unique perspective.

There will be a book signing at the International Medical Interpreters Association conference this week. Read the press release from Common Sense Advisory here.
Here are some reviews for the book:
This is a much-needed and invaluable contribution to the literature on the practice of interpreting. The volume provides unique insight into the relatively new field of telephone interpreting, and should be required reading for anyone involved in interpreting over the phone, whether as a practitioner,consumer, or educator.
Holly Mikkelson, Adjunct Professor, Graduate School of Translation and Interpretation, Monterey Institute of International Studies and author, The Interpreter's Companion and The Interpreter's Edge
Organizations of all kinds are awakening to the fact that telephone interpreting is not a substitute for other types of interpreting, but is a vital and growing specialized area within the field. Rich with examples, this book is a must-read for all interpreters, and is highly recommended to coordinators and managers of interpreting services.
Izabel Arocha, President, Massachusetts Medical Interpreters Association, and Professor of Interpreting, Boston University
This guide is a valuable resource both to interpreters seeking to enter the world of telephonic interpreting and to interpreter service managers interested in introducing telephonic interpreting in their facilities. The author clearly has extensive first-hand experience in the field, providing concrete examples as well as conceptual frameworks. The writing is straightforward and easy to read. I would suggest this book to anyone getting involved with telephonic interpreting.
Cynthia E. Roat, U.S.-based consultant on language access in health care, principal author, Bridging the Gap and former co-chair of the National Council of Interpreting in Health Care
Nataly Kelly's book is the definitive guide to telephone interpreting, and helps reveal the growing importance telephone interpreting has in our society and economy.
