TitleDictionaries and Interpreters
AbstractThe paper views use of lexicographical sources by a particular user group - interpreters, who resort to dictionaries and other lexicographical sources in two different situations - while preparing and during the interpreting process itself. The specificity of interpreters' work means that traditional lexicographical resources are often not useful - they are too broad, too general or outdated. The strategies in interpreting process employed by interpreters may be of some lexicographical interest and are worth considering for dictionary application. New electronic lexicographical means are being prepared to aid interpreters. Finally, community interpreters being a peculiar group need customized dictionaries.
