This is the first book to focus solely on ethics in public service interpreting. Four leading researchers from across Europe share their expertise on ethics, the theory behind ethics, types of ethics, codes of ethics, and what it means to be a public service interpreter.

This volume is highly innovative in that it provides the reader with not just a theoretical basis to explain why underlying ethical dilemmas are so common in the field, but it also offers guidelines that are explained and discussed at length and illustrated with examples. Divided into three parts, this ground-breaking text offers a comprehensive discussion of issues surrounding Public Service Interpreting. The first part centres on ethical theories, the second compares and contrasts codes of ethics and includes real life examples related to ethics, and part three discusses the link between ethics, professional development and trust.

The book serves as both an explanatory and informative core text for students and as a guide or reference book for interpreter trainees as well as for professional interpreters.
