A comprehensive textbook that presents the required knowledge and skills required to become a professional medical interpreter.

The field of medical and healthcare interpreter training has been evolving. We have included an innovative chapter written by Cynthia E. Roat, MPH, A recognized subject matter expert on medical interpreting, she contributed the chapter and exercises on the topic of message conversion: the mechanics and how-to of converting a spoken message from one language to another. The role of the medical interpreter as cultural broker has also been debated and has evolved to include the undeniable fact that medical interpreters serve as mediators of intercultural communication.
