With the emergence of English as a dominant language in the globalization of communicative practices, interpreting plays a major role worldwide in various interlinguistic/cultural settings over a myriad of domain-specific genres. This volume offers a collection of research papers on interpreting across a range of scenarios covering several language combinations with English. It offers multiple research perspectives encompassing diverse interpreting modes within both conference and public service settings, including new emerging areas in Interpreting Studies such as media, remote and sign language interpreting. Each chapter investigates a genre or subgenre associated with a specific field of discourse: business, literature, law, medicine, media, defence, politics, and sport. The variety of topics investigated is broad and the diversity of methodological approaches wide, offering insight into rhetorical, microlinguistic and terminological features, drawing upon text linguistics, discourse and conversation analysis, corpus linguistics and studies on quality.

Conference interpreters are called to work in highly technical communicative events,
therefore they need to acquire specialized knowledge in terms of terminology (LSP), in
order to produce adequate target texts. The goal of the study is to compare two different
methodologies for the creation of glossaries to be used during simultaneous interpreting
in the medical domain; one is more empirical and represents the most frequently adopted
approach among conference interpreters; the second is supported by WordSmith Tools for
the selection of contexts of use. The glossaries created with WordSmith Tools will be compared
with those created manually, and both will be tested in the translation booth for
completeness, clarity, and adequacy.
