Telephone Interpreting Book

Exciting news!

Today it was announced that my book, Telephone Interpreting: A Comprehensive Guide to the Profession, will be published through Language Line Services. Click here to read the full press release.

While this book is entirely separate from the From Our Lips to Your Ears project, many readers have written me as a result of stumbling across information online about the telephone interpreting book. So, it seemed important to share this update here as well.

For more than a year now, I've received your emails asking me how you could obtain a copy of the telephone interpreting book. Up until now, I was unable to let you know when the publication might actually reach you, and could only thank you for your continued patience.

Now, I am able to reassure you that, thanks to Language Line Services, my book will finally reach the public and help others learn more about telephone interpreting.

As many of you know, telephone interpreters worldwide comprise a large part of our family of interpreters. They serve an important purpose in ensuring the delivery of all kinds of services that are provided via telephone in a variety of fields, including insurance, 911/emergency calls, finance, telecommunications, health care, social services and more. As such, their work can be extremely difficult, yet vital to both the lives of individuals and the functioning of society.

The publication of this book will expand the knowledge base for researchers, consumers and language professionals alike, hopefully enabling greater levels of quality to be reached through telephone interpreting.

The book will be published in the course of the next few months, and more updates will be shared through both my and the publisher's websites.

Thanks again to all of you for your patience - now that the wait is nearly over, the book will soon be out there, helping the world, just like the very interpreters who inspired it to begin with.
