More Description

Drawing on more than one hundred hours of taped recordings of Spanish/English court proceedings in federal, state, and municipal courts--along with extensive psycholinguistic research using translated testimony and mock jurors--Susan Berk-Seligson's seminal book presents a systematic study of court interpreters, and raises some alarming, vitally important concerns: contrary to the assumption that interpreters do not affect the contents of court proceedings, they could potentially make the difference between a defendant being found guilty or innocent of a crime.
