Abstract

This introduction presents an overview of the key concepts discussed in the subsequent chapters of this book. The book provides a literature review of interpreter training in conflict and post-conflict scenarios throughout history by analysing different geographical contexts. It also provides an overview of current thought on interpreter training in conflict-related scenarios. The book deals with military interpreting, starts with Pekka Snellman’s “Ethics in military interpreter training.” It describes the particularities of this category of interpreter as compared with other categories, such as civilian interpreters locally recruited by the armed forces, although both categories face similar ethical issues. The book examines the challenges encountered by military interpreters in conflict zones and how these challenges, as well as the required interpreting skills, are acquired in contemporary military interpreter training. It focuses on a case study on the training provided at the Swedish Armed Forces Language School in Uppsala.
