A research area within the School of Languages, Cultures and Societies
Interpreting studies is an interdisciplinary research area which relates not only to the cognitive process of bilingual processing, translingual discourse comprehension and reproduction, interpreter-mediated inter-lingual and cross-cultural communication, but also to interpreter training pedagogy, interpreting practice and activities in interpreter-aided multilingual communication.
Interpreting studies at the University of Leeds covers teaching, research and professional practice in both conference interpreting and public service interpreting.
