Whenever children do not speak the same language of the country where they live, and no action is taken to guarantee them the possibility of communicating in their mother tongue, their rights are at risk. Yet, interpreting is still generally considered as a service activity for adults also in research and interpreter education, and the perception of interpreting by children has so far been understudied. This study investigates children’s perceptions and preferences about communication via an interpreter with the hope of inspiring further research in this area and also, possibly, specialised training for interpreters who work with children

Abstract

Whenever children do not speak the same language of the country where they live, and no action is taken to guarantee them the possibility of communicating in their mother tongue, their rights are at risk. Yet, interpreting is still generally considered as a service activity for adults also in research and interpreter education, and the perception of interpreting by children has so far been understudied. This study investigates children’s perceptions and preferences about communication via an interpreter with the hope of inspiring further research in this area and also, possibly, specialised training for interpreters who work with children
