Activity in Ireland

A wealth of connections, recommendations and resources were kindly shared by Professor John Kearns from Ireland. Dr. Kearns is the editor of the award-winning journal Translation Ireland, published by the Irish Translators and Interpreters Association.

Dr. Kearns also works as reviews editor for the Interpreter and Translator Trainer, a journal that may be of interest to many readers of this blog, published by St. Jerome.

Another publication of potential interest to readers is the ITIA bulletin. There is a lot of great work being done in Ireland at the moment in the T&I fields.

Of special note in Ireland is the work of Mary Phelan, who is very interested in the professional status of community interpreters in Ireland, as well as the new challenges which mass immigration to the country is bringing. She is the author of the Interpreter's Resource, published by Multilingual Matters (UK).
